Summary: Deputy Trevathan was shot and killed while attempting to stop a vehicle that had just been involved in two hit-and-runs. The vehicle fled when Deputy Trevathan attempted to pull it over.

The vehicle finally stopped after a short pursuit. As the driver exited the vehicle he opened fire on Deputy Trevathan with a .38 caliber revolver, striking him twice. Despite being mortally wounded, Deputy Trevathan returned fire, striking the suspect once in the spine, paralyzing him.
