Monday marked ten years since a Spartanburg County was shot and killed in the line of duty.

Deputy Kevin Carper was killed in a gun battle with a suspect following a traffic stop. Both Carver and the suspect died in February 2007.

Carper left behind a wife and 3 daughters.

“We will never forget Deputy Carper, his service to this county and the ultimate sacrifice he made. Rest In Peace Kevin, we miss you,” the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office stated in a Facebook post Monday.

A memorial honoring Carper can be seen outside the sheriff’s office on Howard Street.
