SUP Life Member James Michael Young, son of national Assistant Executive Secretary Alan S. Young, died May 25th in the line of duty in a gun battle with an arrest suspect in Fredonia, Ariz.

Young was a deputy sheriff in Coconino County, Arizona. He and two other law officers were attempting to arrest Ralph Ross Mann, 43, of Fredonia, on a warrant.
