We regret to announce the line-of-duty death of Miller County (Missouri) Sheriff's Deputy Casey Shoemate. While responding to an emergency call Friday evening, Deputy Shoemate attempted to pass another vehicle and was struck head-on. Deputy Shoemate was 26 years old and had served with the Sheriff's Office for one year. He is survived by his parents and fiancee.

Condolences and tributes to Deputy Shoemate can be posted at link

Our thoughts and prayers are with the men and women of the Miller County (Missouri) Sheriff's Office (area of Lake of the Ozarks) after one of their deputies was killed in a crash this evening while responding to an emergency call. We will post additional information after proper notifications have been made.

We are thankful for a positive outcome in Garrett, Indiana (Dekalb County) this evening after an officer was shot in the line-of-duty around 8:30 pm. The officer’s injuries are not considered life threatening. A suspect was also shot during this incident. Few additional details are available at this time.

We ask you to please keep everyone connected to this incident in your thoughts and prayers.
