Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: TX   USA   Wed. Jan. 04, 1989
Summary: Deputy Suzanne Kays was shot and killed with her own weapon after being attacked by a homeless man who had just been released from jail. Deputy Kays was escorting the man from the Lew Sterrett Justice Center when he suddenly turned and punched her, knocking her to the ground. He continued to strike her on the ground and took her gun while they struggled. He then shot and killed her before running toward the booking area where he was confronted by several Dallas Police officers who ordered him to drop the gun. When he refused he was shot in the legs and groin by an officer with a shotgun. He was found incompetent to stand trial and sent to a Texas mental institution.

Deputy Kays had graduated from her academy class only one week before the incident and was on her second shift. She had been in law enforcement for four years.
