Officials said the officer also tried life-saving measures on the male victim until paramedics arrived.

However, the life-saving efforts were not successful, as the victim, 67-year-old Robert Earl Huffman Jr., was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.


An investigation showed an argument took place between Kreegar and his grandfather, Huffman Jr., late in the evening on Sept. 4, authorities said.

Sometime during that argument, it turned violent and Huffman sustained a fatal injury, police said.
