One of the rounds passed directly over the head of a sleeping 4-year-old child, nearly striking the child. The home belongs to a Yavapai County Sheriff’s Deputy and his family. Fortunately, no one was injured.

The Prescott Valley Police Department is seeking information from the public to assist in its investigation.

Sheriff Scott Mascher provides the following statement: “This was not just an attack on law enforcement and one of our deputies, but a cowardly act against his young family. Several local law enforcement agencies are working this incident and using whatever means available to find, arrest, and prosecute this assailant. Silent Witness has offered a minimum $6000 reward for tips and I want the coward to know that we will find you and bring you to justice. You can run, but we will get you.

"As Sheriff, I am aware we have historically enjoyed overwhelming support for law enforcement in Yavapai County, but unfortunately this is a sign of the times now present in our own community.”

A statement from Sheriff-Elect David Rhodes: “As your next Sheriff I cannot condemn harshly enough the cowardly and brazen ambush on our Yavapai County Sheriff's deputy and his family today. We will never accept, tolerate, or allow violent unprovoked attacks on innocent people. The specific targeting of vulnerable people chills all of us. We will find those responsible and swiftly bring them to justice. I want to thank all the many well-wishers and citizens of Yavapai County who have shown support for law enforcement and the Yavapai County Sheriff's office during this time of unprecedented attacks on law enforcement.”

A statement from Craig Brown, Chairman of the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors: “Yavapai County Chairman Brown and the Board of Supervisors condemn this type of behavior toward law enforcement and their families. Law enforcement is here to protect our communities and we support our law enforcement officers throughout Yavapai County. They provide the thin blue line between us and chaos.”

Updates will be provided as soon as available.

The Sheriff’s Office is extremely grateful for the efforts of the Prescott Valley Police Department under the leadership of Chief Steven Roser to bring all available resources to bear as the investigation moves forward.
