Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: DC   USA   Fri. Sep. 24, 1971
Summary: Deputy Marshal Norman Sherriff was shot and killed in Washington, DC, while guarding a prisoner who was attending his father's funeral.

The prisoner's brother had been able to disarm three of the marshals who were guarding the prisoner in the back of the church on Florida Avenue, NW. As the brother and prisoner attempted to escape from the church they were confronted by Deputy Marshal Sherriff. The suspect opened fire on the marshal, killing him.

The two fled in a car but were stopped two miles away after speeding through a radar trap and leading officers on a short chase. The officers who stopped them were unaware of the shooting at the time.

The suspect was convicted of Deputy Marshal Sherriff's murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Marshal Sherriff was survived by his wife.
