Slain deputy mourned — even by those he arrested

--- Quote ---ay after Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Owen was shot and killed during a burglary call, mourners gathered Thursday at the Lancaster sheriff’s station to pay their respects to a lawman whom one resident described as “one of the good ones.”

Just before 8 a.m., Bishop Vaughn stopped at the station to offer prayers for the fallen sergeant.

His first encounter with Owen wasn’t ideal. It was about eight years ago and the sergeant arrested him.

"That's how long we've been together, partners," Vaughn said. "He brought me a long way."
