Deputy Sheriff Logan Fox and Sergeant Chris Ward were shot and killed while conducting a welfare check at a home on Hardaman Circle.

A coworker of the homeowner had requested a welfare check after the man did not report for work and was not answering his phone. Responding officers discovered all the vehicles belonging to the owner in the driveway. As Sergeant Ward and Deputy Fox entered the home to check on the occupants, someone inside opened fire, striking both deputies.

Backup officers were able to extract Sergeant Ward from the house but were unable to reach Deputy Fox. Sergeant Ward was flown to a hospital in Johnson City, Tennessee, where he succumbed to his injuries.

The subject barricaded himself inside of the house and continued to shoot at law enforcement officers who were on the perimeter throughout the day. He committed suicide several hours into the barricade. Deputy Fox was retrieved from the residence and pronounced dead.

Deputy Sheriff Logan Fox had served with the Watauga County Sheriff's Office for two years and had previously served two years with the Ashe County Sheriff's Office. He is survived by his parents, sister, and fiancé.

Thank you for your honorable service. We will never understand while on this earth why you and others like you are sometimes taken from us far too early. But we will someday understand! Those who love you and trust in Jesus will be reunited with you. My heart aches for your friends and family. I am humbled by your sacrifice. Many wonder why our young people continue to serve in a world that seems thankless and selfish, however, being an LEO is a calling from God and I and so many others are thankful that you answered the call. Deputy Logan Fox. You are a true hero and I thank God for your life. Your family and friends will forever be in my prayers.
