On October 5, 1993, Officers Andy Nobles and John Burnette were responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle in Boulevard Homes.
After the officers confirmed that the vehicle had been reported stolen and that the driver was a wanted person, the driver ran into a nearby wooded area.
The officers caught up with the suspect, and a struggle ensued. During the fight, the suspect was able to grab one of the officers' service weapon and shoot both of them. The suspect was later apprehended after an intense manhunt.
Officer Nobles was 26 Officer Burnette was 25.
