Police Officer Kenneth Moody was shot and killed after he and his partner responded to a silent burglar alarm at Hamilton Junior High School. Officer Moody and his partner exchanged shots with a suspect inside of the school and Officer Moody was shot in the chest and fatally wounded.

The suspect served 11 years in prison before his conviction was overturned by a federal judge. The suspect, however, was shot and killed in 1986 during a shootout with Arizona law enforcement officers after killing K9 Murph, of the Tempe Police Department, and taking a 6-year-old boy hostage (the child was not injured).

Officer Moody was a U.S. Navy veteran. He was survived by his son and daughter.
