Deputy Brent Holloway was shot and killed by an arson suspect who had earlier stated he was going to kill a police officer.

The suspect had set fire to a large cabin home in Teller County with the intention of getting revenge for previously being sent to prison. As Deputy Holloway guarded the house while awaiting the arson investigators, the suspect snuck up from behind and shot him in the back of the head.

The suspect stole Deputy Holloway's service weapon and used it to commit suicide two days later.

Deputy Holloway had served with the Teller County Sheriff's Office for three years. He was survived by his wife, mother, and three siblings.

I lived in Colorado when this happened and remember it. Thank you to Officer Holloway for your service. I lived the majority of my life in Colorado, now living in WY. I send my sympathy to his family.
