On May 1, 2017, Deputy Mark Burbridge was shot after he and fellow deputy, Pat Morgan, transported two prisoners to the Pottawattamie County Jail from the Courthouse.  One of the inmates attacked the deputies within the jail garage and managed to grab a gun. The inmate then shot both Burbridge and Moran and stole the prisoner transport van and fled the jail. Deputy Burbridge died from the injuries he sustained.
