Sheriff Deputy Killed In Line Of Duty Crash
A Quitman County (MS) deputy died in the line of duty Saturday night.
Deputy Jimmy Clark was killed in a crash will responding to a call.
Clark was responding to a shooting call when he swerved to dodge two dogs in the road in the Falcon community on Mississippi Highway 3, about eight miles north of Marks, fellow officers said.
Town Clerk Stephanie Armstead said Clark loved the kids, and they loved him back. He was known and loved by everyone in Crowder, a town of between 700-800 people where he was the police chief before he left around two years ago to be a Quitman County Deputy.
Clark was a husband and father, and he was the kind of good guy who made a mark on a small Mississippi town known for being a little strange about outsiders.
