Deputy Andrew Taylor was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop.

He pulled a vehicle over near the intersection of Skyline and Dilley Street at approximately 2310 hours. After Deputy Taylor called in a description of the vehicle and a license check, he was not heard from again. Soon after, someone leaving a nearby mobile home saw the deputy lying still in the road and called police. When they arrived they found that Deputy Taylor had been shot once in the head.

Deputy Taylor was transported to the hospital where he died the next day from his wound.

The suspect was on parole for a previous robbery conviction and had violated the terms of that parole. After a massive manhunt the suspect was located. As officers moved in, he shot himself in the head. The killer was taken to the hospital where he died of the wound.

Deputy Taylor had served with the Llano County Sheriff's Office for three years. He is survived by his parents, brother, stepmother, and fiancee.

I never had the privilege to meet you in person but I was there for your funeral. The way the cars filled every street was something to be seen.

There has not been a day on patrol that I do not pass a windmill that you do not come to mind. I still can see the one on the stage like it was yesterday.

It pains me to see the pain your mother carries and the toll the badge requires. Rest assured you are not forgotten. God bless you, your family, and all of us on the front line continuing the fight.
