Description: Officer Shivers was shot with her own weapon by a mentally deranged woman. Officer John Lunney had conducted a traffic stop and as he wrote the citation, another car slammed into Officer Lunney's police cruiser which hurled him onto the roof of the vehicle he had stopped. The vehicle that caused the crash burst into flames. Officer Shivers arrived at the scene and attempted to rescue the woman in the burning vehicle. As Officer Shivers tried to save the woman's life, the woman grabbed Officer Shiver's weapon and shot her several times. A shoot-out ensued and the woman was killed. Officer Shivers died the following day. The investigation revealed that the woman had intentionally hit the police cruiser in an attempt to kill herself.
