      Memorial stone to honor late lawman

      CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A memorial stone is being erected in honor of a Faulkner County sheriff's deputy who died in April.

      The stone will be placed on the Faulkner County Courthouse lawn in honor of Hans Fifer.

      Fifer died April 8 during SWAT team tryouts in North Little Rock. Fifer collapsed after complaining of chest pains and died at a nearby hospital.

      Sheriff Andy Shock told The Log Cabin Democrat (http://bit.ly/17QwSN8) that Fifer was "a perfect example" of a law enforcement officer.
