Police-involved shooting: A closer look at who the slain deputies were

ABINGDON, Md. (WBFF) -- The two officers murdered in Harford County have been identified.

Deputy Mark Logsdon had been with the Harford County Sheriff's Department for 16 years. He leaves behind his wife and three children.

Deputy Patrick Dailey had worn a badge for 30 years, and had stayed with the department despite his eligibility to retire. He leaves behind a girlfriend and two children.

Both had served in the military before becoming Sheriff's Deputies. Dailey had also been a volunteer firefighter with the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Department since he was 16 years old. His two sons are also volunteers with the same fire company.

Deputies Dailey and Logsdon are the first deputies in Harford County to be fatally shot in the line of duty in more than a century. The last time a Harford County Deputy was fatally shot in the line of duty was in 1899.
