Eugene W. Minor

Officer Minor was shot and killed after stopping a vehicle near 16th Street N and 27th Avenue. The driver of the car was skipping town because he had a warrant. After Officer Minor initially spoke with the driver he was returning to the car a second time when the man shot him in the chest with a 16 gauge shotgun.

The suspect fled the scene but was located a short time later by other officers and wounded in a shootout. He was able to escape but encountered other officers in Clearwater and was shot and killed during a second shootout.

Officer Minor was survived by his wife and daughter.
