Deputy Jimmy Shoop was killed when his patrol car was struck by a drunk driver. He had just finished writing a citation to a driver and was parked on the side of the road when the drunk driver struck his patrol car at an estimated 60 mph.

Deputy Shoop had previously served with the Estacada Police Department.
