Deputy Horr succumbed to a gunshot wound received two months earlier after responding to a disturbance call. After receiving no response at the front door he went to the back door. When he knocked again he was shot from inside the home by a man with a 16-gauge shotgun. He was transported to the hospital with wounds to his stomach and hand.
The suspect was apprehended a short time later. He was convicted of second degree murder and served 7 years in prison.
Deputy Horr had served with the agency for 3 years and was assigned to the Montrose Station. He was survived by his wife and three sons.
