Milton Boortz

Marshal Boortz was shot and killed when he and an off duty Texas Highway Patrol officer stopped a vehicle that had just left a liquor store. Unbeknownst to the officers, the two occupants had just robbed the store. As Marshal Boortz leaned into the vehicle the passenger, who was hiding on the rear floorboard, shot him.

The other officer returned fire but did not strike either suspect. Both men were eventually arrested and charged with capital murder.

Marshal Boortz was survived by his wife and two sons.
