Patrolman George Miller was shot and killed from ambush while responding to a domestic disturbance call. As he walked down the home's driveway the male subject opened fire from a hiding spot in a group of bushes.

The shot knocked Patrolman Miller to the ground. The suspect, who had been arrested by Patrolman Miller in the past, then shot him in the back four more times.

The suspect was convicted of murdering Patrolman Miller and sentenced to death. The death sentence was overturned and he was sentenced to life in prison. He died in prison two years later.

Patrolman Miller had served with the agency for 19 years. He was survived by his wife and two children.
