Deputy Jeffrey Mitchell was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop in the area of Dillard Road and Meiss Road at approximately 3:30 am.

After contacting dispatchers and telling them he was conducting a vehicle stop, Deputy Mitchell was not heard from again. A backup deputy was sent to the scene to check on him. Deputy Mitchell was found shot once in the head by his own service weapon following a violent struggle.

Deputy Mitchell had served with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department for 9 years. He is survived by his wife and 6-year-old son.

I just wanted Deputy Mitchell's widow to know he has not been forgotten. I still have the red, white and blue wristband that was given to me on the day of his memorial. My ex and I had met just blocks away on a blind date and days before where Deputy Mitchell's life was taken. I always wondered if I would receive that knock on the door. Even though I reside out of the State of California now, the current events brought back memories of that tragic day 8 years ago. I want people to remember the Deputy Mitchell's killer is still out there. He will not be forgotten nor you for your strength and perseverance and I commend you for going on and raising your son. God bless you.
