“It was a defining moment in my life and It’s lead me to where I am now dealing with the things I’m dealing with mentally” ~ Officer Kurt Dabb on his first officer involved shooting. 

Prior to becoming a Homicide Detective, Kurt Dabb worked patrol. While on search for a Felony Warrant Suspect,  Officer Dabb and a K9 unit located the guy (individual) at a Motel in Tucson, Arizona.
