Deputy Sheriff Lonny Lindsey was shot and killed after responding to a robbery call, despite being on sick leave.

While at home, Deputy Lindsey heard a call regarding a robbery at a location a half mile from his home. To help out his six-person department, Deputy Lindsey responded to the call. While checking a tag number of a truck that he pulled over, he called out shots fired, which was his last radio transmission. Although mortally wounded by a shot from a .30 caliber rifle, he was able to shoot both suspects. Both were arrested a short time later, tried, and convicted of murder.

Deputy Lindsey had served with the Holmes County Sheriff's Office for 5 years. He is survived by his wife and two young children.

Eleven years later, Deputy Lindsey's uncle, Reserve Deputy Joe Bill Galloway, of the Holmes County Sheriff's Office was killed while pursuing a speeding vehicle.
