Deputy Kenneth R. Blair

September 28, 1995
Responding to a domestic violence call at an apartment complex near Luke Air Force Base, Deputy Blair called for a backup but decided to enter the apartment alone when he heard a woman screaming. Blair was gunned down as he entered. The gunman, who was standing in a bedroom doorway, shot Deputy Blair once in the head and three times in the chest before using his last rifle bullet to kill himself. Deputy Blair had no chance to use the pepper spray in his hand, and the bullets that struck him all hit above his protective vest. Backup arrived seven minutes later.
