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.

Still miss you Little O, every year I spend this day reflecting on you. Any more would be crushing. I wish you could meet your nephew Wally. Almost as tall as dad now, same size foot, and going to highschool this year. I miss you ever day and always wonder where you would be now. RIP
