Deputy George Selby was shot and killed as he and other members of the Narcotics Unit, attempted to serve a warrant at a home in the Frayser neighborhood in northern Memphis at approximately 2000 hours.

The deputies knocked on the door and identified themselves. No one answered the door and moments later shots were fired from inside the home. Deputy Selby was struck in the shoulder in an area not protected by his vest. He was transported to Regional Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds.

One of the suspects was shot and wounded and both were taken into custody. The shooter was sentenced to life plus 100 years in prison and the sentence was upheld on appeal.

Deputy Selby had been employed with the Shelby County Sheriff's Department for eight years, and had been assigned to the Narcotics Unit for two years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

I remember being over at Stauffer's hose with you and Speight when Stauffer was frying fish one night. You kept going through the kitchen and stealing the fish as he was frying it. We kept laughing and George couldn't figure out what we were laughing at. After he had been frying fish for 30 minutes and there was only 3 pieces on the plate, he figured out you had been taking it. We were all laughing so hard. Miss you brother.
