Edward Minor

Officer Minor was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a fugitive who was hiding inside of a barn. The suspect was wanted for killing another man in a local bar. As the suspect was barricaded in the barn, Officer Minor entered and exchanged shots with the man. Officer Minor was struck in the chest during the exchange. He was able to walk out of the barn where he layed down and succumbed to the wound.

The suspect was arrested and hung three months later.

Officer Minor had been with the agency for 1 year and was survived by his mother, four brothers, and sister.
