John Williams

Officer John Williams and Officer Adam Hawk were shot and killed by a suspect wanted in the assault of a young girl. Following the assault the girl's father attempted to remove her from the reservation. As Officer Hawk escorted them off of the reservation the suspect ambushed them and shot Officer Hawk, killing him. The suspect then went to Officer Williams' home and called out to Officer Williams, who was working in his barn. When the Officer Williams came to the door of the barn he was shot by the suspect.

The suspect then fled into the woods of the reservation, but was apprehended and pled guilty to two counts of second degree murder.
