Deputy Maurice Miller was shot and killed when he attempted to serve a summons for non-support at a farmhouse on U.S. Highway 71 in Bossier Parish at 2:00 p.m.

Other officers arrived on the scene, and the subject refused to release the body from the home and surrender, resulting in a stand-off. The suspect then shot and killed Chief Edward Huckabay of the Shreveport Police Department and injured another deputy when they attempted to retrieve the body of Deputy Miller at 4:30 p.m. A gunfight and a stand-off ensued until the suspect was shot and killed by other officers.

On today, the 70th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army as a Military Policeman during World War II. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
