PoliceLink Officer Down Remembers...


  


Deputy Sheriff Denny Lawrence
Elko County Sheriff's Office

Nevada


End of Watch: January 17, 2012


Biographical Information
Age: Not available
Tour: 26 years
Badge Number:  Not available


 


 Incident Details
Cause of Death: Gunfire
Date of Incident: June 26, 1982
Weapon Used: Handgun; 22 caliber
Suspect: Shot and killed




Deputy Sheriff Denny Lawrence succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained 30 years earlier while investigating a minor traffic accident on US 93 south of Jackpot, Nevada.


Unbeknownst to Deputy Lawrence, the suspect had just been released from the California Department of Corrections. Upon his release, he went to his former cellmate's home where he murdered two people and stole their car. Several campers in the area were helping the man stay warm as they waited for an officer to respond to the accident.


As Deputy Lawrence began to run the man's driver license, the man approached him and suddenly shot him once in the forehead with a .22 caliber handgun. He then fired again, but missed, before taking Deputy Lawrence's service revolver. Two armed citizens then shot and killed the subject as he opened fire on bystanders in an attempt to steal a vehicle to escape.


Deputy Lawrence remained in a coma for several days. He suffered severe brain damage and remained completely disabled in an assisted living home until passing away from medical complications of the wound.


Deputy Lawrence had served in law enforcement for a total of 26 years before he was shot.


He is survived by his two sons.

Our beloved Brother, as you now patrol the streets of Heaven, may you look

back with pride knowing you did your job valiantly. You went running toward

the danger to protect your citizens. We thank you for your service and for

your sacrifice. We thank you for your life you gave As Only A Warrior Dare.

Job well done Sir. May you continue your vigilant watch over us all as we

carry on in the battles to come. In Our Brother's Honor.
