Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: OH   USA   Tue. Jan. 08, 2002
Summary: Deputy Robert Tanner was shot and killed after being flagged down in a residential area in Zanesville, Ohio.

He was on patrol when he radioed dispatch that he was being flagged down and gave them a license plate number to check. Shortly there after Deputy Tanner radioed dispatch again but when dispatch answered he did not answer. With no response dispatch sent backup. He was found by a passerby, with a gunshot wound, next to his vehicle. His service weapon was still in its holster.

Three suspects were apprehended later in the evening during a massive search, after other officers located the car with the license plate Deputy Tanner had called in. The three suspects fled the scene but were all apprehended in a wooded area. The shooter pled guilty to all charges and was sentenced to life without parole.

Deputy Tanner had been employed with the Muskingum County Sheriff's Department for eight years, and he is survived by his wife.
