Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: TX   USA   Wed. Mar. 13, 1963
Summary: Officer Sherrill King was shot and killed while working undercover after receiving tips that a local bar was serving alcohol to minors. He and another officer were in the bar when the bartender was confronted by her estranged husband. The owner of the bar told the man to leave at which time he pulled out a .22 caliber handgun and shot the bar owner in the jaw.

Officer King jumped at the man in an attempt to stop him and was shot in the chest. The suspect ran outside and was apprehended by responding deputies hiding in the bushes. He was sentenced to 15 years for capital murder of Officer King and 25 years for the attempted murder of the bar owner. He was released after only six years.

Officer King had served with the agency for 9 months. He was survived by his mother, sister, and two brothers.p
