Patrolman Neupert was shot and killed after he stopped three suspects in an area known for high levels of illegal narcotics activity. As Patrolman Neupert was searching the suspects, one suspect drew a small caliber revolver and fired once at Patrolman Neupert, striking him in the throat. The suspects then put his body in a nearby ditch. An off duty officer who happened across the scene located Patrolman Neupert's body in the ditch.

The suspects were located several weeks later and were all shot and killed by other officers who were attempting to arrest them.

As Houston prepares to bury another officer, indeed every time I hear of another officer killed in the line of duty, I think of Greg. I think of that horribly phone call that came in the middle of the night, of my grandmother crying, inconsolable, at his wake and funeral, of the unshakable faith of my aunt and uncle, of a much-too-young widow. Then I remember growing up with Greg, the young man who lit up a room the minute he walked in and how much he loved being a police officer. It's disgusting that when his name is googled, the stories of his murderers seem to take priority. God bless and protect all our men in blue. #bluehouston
