Constable Otis Hendrix was shot and killed when he accompanied the county sheriff and several deputies as they conducted inspections at several local bars.

As they entered one of the bars, they were confronted by the owner who told the sheriff to leave. As the sheriff attempted to speak with the man, the man pulled a gun from under his coat and began shooting at the sheriff. The shots missed the sheriff but one of the rounds struck Constable Hendrix, killing him. The other deputies returned fire, killing the suspect.

Constable Hendrix was survived by his wife and five children.

Otis Hendrix is/was my great grandfather. I never met him but have heard stories how a wonderful and a good man and father he was. My grandmother, Allene Hendrix-Horton (age 90) still today does not know the name of person who shot her daddy. I am doing some research and I would like to have this question answered if anyone out there knows who shot my great-grand-daddy. Thank you.
