  • Deputy Sheriff Richard Herzog

    King County Sheriff's Department, WA

    Cause of Death: Gunfire
    End of Watch: June 22, 2002
    Date of Incident: June 22, 2002
    Age: 46
    Tour of Duty: 7 yr
    Suspect Info: Apprehended
    Weapon Used: Officer's handgun

    Deputy Herzog was shot and killed with his own service weapon after responding to a call at 1700 hours involving a naked man creating a disturbance in the roadway on Coal Creek Parkway. When Deputy Herzog, who was wearing a vest, arrived on the scene he attempted to subdue the man with pepper spray. The spray had no affect on the man, who then attacked Deputy Herzog. Deputy Herzog's service weapon, a .40 caliber Glock, was knocked to the ground and the magazine came out of it.

    The suspect picked up the weapon and replaced the magazine. As Deputy Herzog attempted to retreat the suspect shot him once, knocking him to the ground. The suspect then stood over him and shot him ten more times before fleeing to a nearby apartment. The man was apprehended approximately 45 minutes later. The suspect had been released from jail only 11 days earlier after serving several months for assaulting a police officer.

    Deputy Herzog had been with the agency for
    seven years and had spent the past four years working in the City of Newcastle, which contracted to the sheriff's department for police coverage. He was a US Army veteran and is survived by his wife and two teenage daughters.
