Officer Scott Flahive was shot and killed after he had stopped a vehicle which was just chased into the city limits and contained two recently escaped criminals. As Officer Flahive approached the car one of the suspects was laying in the back seat and shot through the door with a 30-06 rifle, striking him and killing him instantly.

The suspects turned themselves in and the shooter was sentenced to multiple life sentences. The accomplices were sentenced to 10 and 15 years.

Officer Flahive had been with the agency for four years and was survived by his parents and sister.
