Daniel Scott Webster

Police Officer Dan Webster succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained on October 21st, 2015, while making a traffic stop.

He had stopped a motorcycle that was displaying a stolen license plate near the intersection of Central Avenue and Eubank Boulevard at approximately 8:00 pm. Officer Webster had placed one handcuff on the subject's left wrist when the man pretended to be injured by complaining that his right shoulder was hurt. The subject then reached for a concealed handgun and opened fire on him at close range. Officer Webster was struck in the face, chest, and arm.

The man, a felon with a prior manslaughter conviction, was arrested a short time later by responding officers who had contained him within a perimeter.

Officer Webster was transported to a local hospital where he remained on life support until succumbing to his wounds one week later.

Officer Webster was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Albuquerque Police Department for eight years.

SFC Webster was my platoon sergeant at Ft Bragg from 99-01. My first and best platoon sgt. He taught me the 60mm mortar and basically raised me to be the best gunner in the battalion. He was a tough teacher, many times I didn’t like him at all. But I respected him, and will miss him. I’ve tried to look him up many times over the years. Sadly this is the first I have found. Few know he was a medic prior to being infantry, and those massive hands could administer a flu shot flawlessly. Lol I never saw it coming. Salute to a man worth knowing and remembering. He will never be forgotten.
