James L. Keeton 310

Officer Keeton was shot to death with his own weapon by Bertram Greenberg on February 7, 1971, a suspect in the rape and murder of a 13-year-old California girl. Keeton, who lost his pistol during a skirmish with Greenberg, was shot after stopping Greenberg for a traffic violation on Interstate 40, 12 miles west of the New Mexico state line.

Don A. Beckstead 409

A few minutes after shooting Officer Keeton, Greenberg shot Officer Beckstead during another traffic stop. It is believed that Officer Beckstead was not aware of the shooting involving Keeton. Officer Beckstead died two days later in a Gallup, N.M., hospital. After shooting the two DPS officers, Greenberg kidnapped and killed another person during the chase before New Mexico authorities shot and killed him.
