At a 13-hour stand-off at a residence in Boone, NC on April 28, 2021 Sgt. Ward was one of two officers shot by a barricaded suspect and unfortunately he succumbed to his injuries the same day after being air-lifted to a nearby hospital. He leaves behind a wife and two children.
It is our intention to place funds raised into a trust fund for Sgt. Ward's children as we have previously done with fallen officers Deputy Hendrix and Deputy Allison and their respective children.
