Michael Page

Deputy Michael Page was shot and killed with his own service weapon during a struggle with a hit-and-run suspect.

Deputy Page had responded to a report of a car striking a utility pole. As he arrived on the scene he observed a man running into the nearby woods. A scuffle ensued in the woods and Deputy Page was struck over the head and then shot in the shoulder with his own weapon.

Paramedics and other deputies who responded to the scene located Deputy Page as he walked himself out of the woods. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds a short time later.

The suspect's body was found later in the day with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Deputy Page, a U.S. Army veteran, had served with the Bowie County Sheriff's Department for 3 years and had previously served with the Texarkana Police Department for 5 years. He is survived by his wife, two children, parents, and three sisters.

Thinking about you brother. I remember the times we would be hang out at track meets during and after our field events at LE. We both grew up went our separate ways after high school but reconnected at Bi-State in the jail one afternoon. I was happy to see you and was excited you were wanting to work as a police officer which I supported your idea to apply. Even though we work with different police departments you in Texas and me in Arkansas I still felt I had a good friend. I can proudly say you and I a part of the Liberty-Eylau class of 91 "Another Bad Class (ABC)" . Since 07 I have change careers and I now teach criminal justice to college students and I share what friendship is before, during and after the badge. To your family please know that I pray for them also that your kids know their farther is a true hero who I will never forget.
