Kent Dean Kincaid

Sergeant Kent Kincaid was shot and killed after confronting several suspects who damaged his windshield while he and his wife were driving to meet friends for dinner.

An object was thrown from a pickup truck driving in the opposite direction, striking the windshield of his vehicle. Sergeant Kincaid turned around and followed the vehicle for several blocks until it stopped, at which point he approached the vehicle and identified himself as a police officer.

One subject in the vehicle fired a single shot that struck him in the head. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The subject was eventually arrested and sentenced to death.

Sergeant Kincaid had served with the Houston Police Department for 13 years. He is survived by his wife and two young daughters.

In Nomine Patris Et Fili Et Spiritus Sancti. Foreverlasting Saint Michael The Archangel, defend us in the war and battle against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all other evil spirits prowling around the world seeking the ruin of Souls. Amen.

No cop deserves to die. No cop deserves to die. No cop deserves to die. God help Law Enforcement. I pray for your soul to be with us all the time. Eternally, Be at Bliss. I pray for this with all my heart and soul. I do not protect your killer. Ever. Amen.
