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. Due to weak drunk driving laws at the time no serious action was taken against the driver.

Deputy Shoop had previously served with the Estacada Police Department.

I was 12 years old in 1981. My Dad, Deputy Flint, worked with Deputy Shoop. I remember, as if it were yesterday, when my Dad came home and shared the horrible news with my mom; they both wept. The pain was palpable, and at that very moment, as a 12 year old girl, I understood, really understood, what the LEO family was. As I walk through my shift, as a Deputy myself now, I often reflect on that moment, and I take a second to remember, and think of the family, both blood and blue (or deputy brown, if you will) that we are part of. It took me a few years, Deputy Shoop, but rest easy, Sir; I, along with many others, have your watch.
Much love your direction,
~Wayne's daughter
