McLean has worked for the Hood County Sheriff's Office five years. On Friday afternoon, a few people took flowers to the office, including Erik Clark and some of his relatives. Clark, carrying yellow flowers, said his father had been a deputy in the 1970s and that he knows many people in the office.
