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

Deputy Hill was off duty when he witnessed a shooting outside a nightclub in Harris County. 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.

Probably my best friend growing up. You were always in my corner. I'm grateful that I got a chance to know you. I will never forget talking our way out of a fight at RA camp. You were there in case there was a scrap and, honestly, were probably a little disappointed that I was such a smooth talker. Always ready to run into the battle, especially on behalf of those who were in need of protection. Miss you bro.
