Luke Curry

Officer Curry was shot by a business owner as he and another officer checked business doors during the nightly rounds. Officer Curry had found an unlocked door and, as he entered the business to investigate further, was shot once in the head and killed.

The business owner, who had just moved into town and was sleeping in the store, was charged with unlawful killing. He was acquitted of the charges because he had mistaken Officer Curry for a burglar.

Officer Curry had served with the agency for 12 years. He was survived by his wife and five children.
