Dep. Kenneth Blair
Died in the line of duty 9/28/1995

Responding to a domestic violence call at a Glendale apartment, Deputy Blair called for backup but decided to go in alone when he heard a woman screaming. Blair was gunned down as he entered the residence. The gunman, who was standing in a bedroom doorway, shot the Deputy once in the head and three times in the chest before using the last bullet to kill himself. Deputy Blair had no chance to use the pepper spray in his hand, and the bullets that struck him all landed above his bullet-proof vest. Backup arrived just seven minutes after his call.
