Tragic & senseless.


Deputy Sheriff JD Paugh was shot and killed after stopping behind a vehicle on the side of I-520, near Gordon Highway, at approximately 1:20 am.

Deputy Paugh had just gotten off duty and was driving his department motor unit home when he observed a vehicle on the side of the highway. Possibly believing it was disabled, he started to stop his motorcycle behind it. Before he was able to put his kickstand down, a male occupant of the vehicle opened fire with an M4 rifle. Deputy Paugh returned fire three times, wounding the subject in the arm, before his service weapon was struck by a round and disabled.

The subject fired over over 30 rounds at Deputy Paugh, striking him at least nine times. The man then committed suicide before responding units arrived at the scene.

It is believed that the male occupant and his girlfriend were engaged in a domestic dispute at the time Deputy Paugh observed the vehicle and stopped.

My condolences to Deputy Paugh's family.

Tough to get rounds downrange when you're getting pinged by .223. He must have been squared away to give some before he went 10-7. My hat's off. Least the turd ended up DRT as well.

So sad, he just stopped because he thought he could help someone and ends up getting killed.

RIP My fallen Brother and all other LEO's.


I was told that more LEO's died in the line of duty last year than the Army had over seas. The real war is here on our soil.
