Deputy Hill died one month after being dragged by a vehicle. He was attempting to arrest the suspects that were inside the vehicle.

He followed the suspect's vehicle into the City of Houston and approached the passenger side of the vehicle when it stopped. Several shots were exchanged. Deputy Hill was dragged as the vehicle was driven through the intersection. Deputy Hill then fell to the ground, where he was struck by another vehicle which was following behind.

Deputy Hill had been employed with the Harris County Sheriff's Department for three years, and is survived by his parents, brother, and three sisters.

Oscar,

It has been ten years since my last reflection on here. I have retired and come back to Law Enforcement twice since then. It is because of missing being around good guys like you that keeps bringing me back. I often think of you and Barry and wonder what kind of lives and careers you would have had. Semper Fi, my friend. Until Valhalla...
