Officer Pollock chased one man into a residential area. As Officer Pollock ran through an opened gate, the suspect ambushed him and shot him in the head. The suspect was then shot and killed by Officer Pollock's partner.

Thinking about both you and Dan on the anniversary of your death. I was working that Friday night in Laramie and heard about the shooting although no details initially. I was there at your funeral to stand with all your brothers and sisters in your honor. You are not forgotten.
