Lieutenant Robert L. Dorn

August 31, 1965
Lieutenant Bob Dorn stopped to assist an apparently stalled car at 91st Avenue and Glendale Avenue. The driver had been recently visited by deputies inquiring about delinquent taxes. In a panic over the possibility of losing his trailer home, the man jumped out of his truck and began firing with no warning. The fatally wounded Dorn returned fire. A passing motorist went to a phone and called the Sheriff. When deputies arrived, they found the Lieutenant’s body lying beside his unmarked patrol car. The man who killed him was located within the hour and charged with murder after his non-serious wounds were treated.
