Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: Steven Miller / Male
Miller was wanted for investigation of a murder at the Pepper Tree Motel the previous day.

  
Location:   Ontario, CA   USA   Wed. Oct. 15, 1975
Summary: Miller was seen walking along Sixth Street near the overpass of the IS 10 freeway and as a police unit responded to the area, it was immediately fired upon by Miller who fled the scene on foot. Officer Hyche drove to an apartment complex north of the freeway and parked and exited his unit to see if anyone had seen the suspect running in the area.

Hyche had taken only about 10 steps when Miller shot him from the corner of one of the apartment buildings. Hyche fell wounded. Officers Pete Carillo and Rusty Green arrived, and risked their lives to pull Hyche to safety while under fire from Miller. Officer Hyche died at 12:40pm.

Disposition: Miller was captured, convicted of the murder and sentenced to death, escaping the gas chamber due to Supreme Court decisions. He later escaped from prison and was killed in Montana after a deadly crime spree there.
