Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier was shot and killed while conducting an undercover narcotics operation in Jackson, Tennessee, at approximately 2:00 pm.
The subject of the investigation had Agent Frazier and an informant drive to Brianfield Cove where he told them he could obtain one ounce of cocaine. When the man returned to the backseat of the vehicle he displayed a handgun and attempted to rob them. Agent Frazier was shot once in the back as he attempted to exit the vehicle.
The man fled the scene on foot but was arrested at a home approximately one half mile away. He was subsequently charged with murder and attempted aggravated robbery.
Special Agent Frazier had served with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for only six months and was assigned to the Jackson-Madison County Metro Narcotics. He had previously served with the Millington Police Department for six years, the University of Memphis Police Department for four years, and also served with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office as a reserve deputy. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier was shot to death Tuesday afternoon in Jackson, marking the first line-of-duty death for the agency.

Frazier, 35, joined the TBI in February after working as an officer with the Millington Police Department.

TBI Director Mark Gywn said Frazier was shot while working with Jackson-Madison County Metro Narcotics on an undercover drug operation on Brianfield Cove about 2 p.m.

Frazier was in a car with an informant and another man conducting an undercover drug purchase. The other man, who was sitting in the back seat, pulled a gun and tried to rob Frazier and the informant, who were in the front seat, TBI spokesman Josh DeVine said. The gunman fired once, striking the TBI agent.

The TBI said the gunman was captured on Tinker Hill Cove, less than a half-mile from the shooting scene. His name has not been released.

Frazier was pronounced dead at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.

"This has been one of the toughest days in our agency’s history," DeVine said in a press conference at the Jackson Police Department.

Gwyn said Frazier lived in Shelby County, but was working with Jackson police.

Frazier was a father and husband, Gwyn said.

"To say that we are devastated by today’s events is an understatement," Gwyn said. "We are a family at the TBI, so the loss of this agent in the line of duty hits all of us from Memphis to Mountain City."

Gwyn said Frazier was “exactly what we look for in a TBI agent: hardworking, enthusiastic and dedicated to making Tennessee a better place to live. We are deeply saddened by his death and will work aggressively to investigate this case to the fullest. His commitment to our agency and the public will not be forgotten."

Asked about possible charges, the director said: “Obviously, murder,” and added the TBI will consult with the district attorney about further charges.

Millington Public Safety Director Gary Graves said Tuesday evening that Frazier worked for that department from February 2010 until six months ago. He was assigned to several divisions, including investigations and as a dog handler. He also served with the Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force.

"This is very, very rough," Graves said. "With all of the police shootings that have gone on, it affects the officers. But this one was close to home."

State Sen. Mark Norris, R-Collierville, said he was briefed on the incident before the TBI press conference.

"We mourn this terrible loss," Norris said in a statement. "West Tennessee has lost one of her own. Agent Frazier gave his life in the line of duty doing what our crime fighters do every day — risking their lives to keep us safe. He has not died in vain. The war on drugs continues, and we will redouble our efforts to win."

Gwyn said Frazier’s death is an example of the danger that officers face daily.

"Every day, law enforcement officers in our state put their lives on the line. All we want is to make this state a better place to live," Gwyn said. "Agent Frazier’s death will be our rallying point. Tonight, we ask all the citizens of Tennessee to join with us in holding Agent Frazier’s family in your thoughts and in your prayers."

Gwyn said the operation was no different from ones the TBI conducts daily.

“I have agents all across this state every day doing what Agent Frazier was doing,” he said. “All you can do is pray they go home safely.

“Today, that prayer wasn’t answered, unfortunately.”

Corporal Bill Cooper was shot and killed after he and several other officers responded to a domestic violence call involving an armed subject at a home on the 4700 block of Highway 253.
The subject opened fire on responding officers with a rifle, fatally wounding Corporal Cooper and wounding the Hackett Police Department’s chief, and pinning down multiple other officers. Corporal Cooper was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. The subject surrendered and was taken into custody a short time later.
A police canine from the Greenwood Police Department was also shot during the incident when the suspect shot into the patrol car she was in. Her handler released the door lock to allow her to get out of the line of fire and she ran off, but she was found two days later suffering from two gunshot wounds.
Corporal Cooper was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office for 16 years.

Sebastian County Deputy Bill Cooper died after he was shot during a standoff Wednesday morning.

Deputy Cooper had served with the county since 2001, according to Sheriff Bill Hollenbeck. Before his service in the sheriff’s department, Cooper was a member of the Ft. Smith Police Department for about 5 years. He was a Marine Corps veteran.
Cooper was "dynamic," Sheriff Hollenbeck said. He was 65 years old, and getting ready to retire.
"He could have retired years ago," Hollenbeck said, but he stayed on because he "loved the men and women he worked with."
Cooper was part of the county’s community policing division.
"He had community policing in his heart," said Hollenbeck.

Police Officer JD DeGuzman was shot and killed as he and his partner conducted a stop near the intersection of Acacia Grove Way and 38th Street at approximately 11:00 pm.
While making contact with the subjects, both officers were shot in the upper body. Responding backup officers transported Officer DeGuzman to a nearby hospital in a patrol car, but he succumbed to his wounds a short time later. His partner was also transported to a local hospital in serious condition.
One subject was arrested a short time later. A second subject fled to a nearby house where he currently remains barricaded.
Officer DeGuzman had served with the San Diego Police Department for 16 years and was assigned to the Gang Unit. He is survived by his wife and two children.

It has been almost 13 years since former San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne pinned one of the department’s purple hearts on Officer Jonathan “J.D.” DeGuzman’s chest, but he has not forgotten the moment or the man.

“I am going to miss him. I really am,” said Lansdowne, who awarded DeGuzman a purple heart in 2003 after the officer was stabbed during a traffic stop. “I saw his picture [Friday], and I remember pinning that heart on him and how impressed I was with him as a person.

“In my time with him, he had a good sense of humor. He was positive and upbeat. He had nothing but kind words to say about the other officers in the department. He would always take the time to talk about his family. He was really the kind of person you would like to be around.”

To the San Diego Police Department, the 43-year-old DeGuzman was the ideal officer, the kind who wanted the tough jobs and had the personal and professional qualifications to do them well.

He and fellow gang-supression officer Wade Irwin were on duty Thursday night when DeGuzman was shot and killed after he and Irwin stopped someone in Southcrest. Irwin also was shot and seriously wounded, but he is expected to recover. DeGuzman died at Scripps Mercy Hospital.

Police later arrested suspected gunman Jesse Michael Gomez, 52, in a ravine near the site of the shooting, authorities said. Gomez was suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper chest, and officers followed a trail of blood to him. The investigation is continuing.

Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman described DeGuzman as a devoted family man and a dedicated officer.

“I personally worked with him when I was a lieutenant at Mid-City Division,” Zimmerman said during a news conference Friday. “I know him, and this is gut-wrenching. He cared. He came to work every single day just wanting to make a positive difference in the lives of our community. And last night, he lost his life trying to make a positive difference and trying to protect our community.”

For the friends and family who gathered Friday afternoon at the Chula Vista home DeGuzman shared with his wife and two young children, DeGuzman was remembered as friendly and outgoing. If he saw you, he would wave and say hello. If your burglar alarm went off, he would stop by to make sure everything was OK.

And for the parents, staff and students at Heritage Elementary School, where one of his children is involved in many activities, DeGuzman was an enthusiastic parent participant and a welcome presence on campus.

“His child was active in clubs and activities, and Officer DeGuzman was active in supporting them, and many people in our community interacted with him,” said Anthony Millican, spokesman for the Chula Vista Elementary School District. “Sometimes he would show up in his uniform, and many of our students would come up and ask him questions. He was very engaging about his career, and there was a great deal of respect and admiration for him.”

In 2013, DeGuzman was one of five San Diego police officers involved in the fatal shooting of William Daniel Mayes. Police said Mayes, who had pipe bombs in his car, pointed a shotgun at officers trying to arrest him after an attack on Mayes’ father, and the officers opened fire.

The District Attorney’s Office found the shooting to be legally justified. Ten years earlier, DeGuzman was awarded a purple heart after being stabbed during a traffic stop. In August 2003, DeGuzman had pulled over Carl Thomas Thompson in City Heights with the intention of issuing him a warning for driving 30 mph in a 25 mph zone.  As DeGuzman approached the vehicle, Thompson stepped out, swinging a knife.

DeGuzman was stabbed in his upper right arm, and when Thompson tried to stab him a second time, DeGuzman fired one shot, hitting Thompson in the hip. Thompson, who spent nine years in prison for trying to kill a police officer in 1989, survived. He later was sentenced to 39 years to life for the attack.

In December 2003, DeGuzman was given the department’s purple heart. The ceremony honoring him and other heroic city employees and residents came during a heartbreaking year for the police department. Three officers died that year, two in the line of duty.

Even so, DeGuzman was determined to join the gang-supression unit, which is dedicated to patrolling areas where gang crime is particularly entrenched.

“It is a very specialized unit,” Lansdowne said. “You have very hard-working officers who know the dangers and the difficulties of being in that unit. They run into a lot of weapons and hardcore serial criminals. They are very experienced and very skilled, and it takes a special kind of officer to work in that unit.

“[DeGuzman] wanted to be in the gang unit, and he didn’t let his injuries stand in his way. He had always done a very good job. He worked hard, and he wanted to be out front. He was the kind of officer every chief would want to have.”

By Friday afternoon, the name of Jonathan DeGuzman had been added to the San Diego Police Department’s Officer Down Memorial Page. He was the 33rd officer to die in the line of duty since 1913.

Sergeant Craig Hutchison was shot and killed when he interrupted a burglary in progress as he arrived home, in Round Rock, at the end of his shift at approximately 1:20 am.
Sergeant Hutchison, who was still in uniform, contacted dispatchers via radio and reported that several subjects were running out of his backyard. Responding deputies located Deputy Hutchison suffering from fatal gunshots in the yard as they arrived approximately 10 minutes later.
The subjects fled the area and remain at large.
Sergeant Hutchison had served with the Travis County Sheriff’s Office for 32 years and was scheduled to retire in two months. He is survived by his wife.

 

A Texas sheriff’s deputy was shot and killed at his home north of Austin before dawn on Monday in what authorities said appeared to be an attempted robbery.

Sgt. Craig Hutchinson of the Travis County Sheriff’s Office used his police radio around 1:30 a.m. to report people in his backyard. Investigators arriving moments later found Hutchinson lying on the ground in his backyard in Round Rock, about 15 miles from Austin.

He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton said at a news conference that no arrests have been made but that authorities are seeking multiple suspects. He said there was evidence that the incident was an attempted robbery of Hutchinson’s backyard shed, rather than someone targeting a law enforcement officer.

Please keep our @TravisCoSheriff family in your thoughts & prayers. Sad, troubling times we live in. @Austin_Police stands with our friends.

— Chief Art Acevedo (@ArtAcevedo) July 25, 2016

Tensions remain high following the fatal shooting earlier this month of five police officers in Dallas and the ambush and killing of three law enforcement officers in Louisiana.

"There’s no suggestion that this was an ambush," Hamilton said. "I heard that there’s a lot of burglaries going on in this community, and I think this was just one of the burglaries."

He said investigators believed items were taken from Hutchinson’s shed and that the officer may have "seen individuals in the shed, and I think that’s where the confrontation occurred."

Hutchinson was a 32-year veteran who had planned to retire in September. Hamilton said Hutchison served as his field training officer and "taught me everything I know."

"This is near and dear to me," Hamilton said. "This guy was a big teddy bear and everyone loved him."

The block where the shooting occurred remained ringed with yellow tape — and red tape surrounded Hutchison’s home down the street — for hours after the shooting. Investigators could be seen working in the area around the home.

Police briefly closed portions of Interstate 35 heading into Austin as a long procession of police cars accompanied Hutchinson’s body to the medical examiner’s office.
