Officer Tommy Bishop succumbed to complications of a gunshot wound sustained 16 years earlier while responding to a domestic disturbance in which a man shot his wife. Officer Bishop was struck by one round below his vest, which hit his spine. The wound caused him to be paralyzed from the waist down.

He continued to suffer severe medical complications before passing away on January 1, 2010.

The suspect was sentenced to 70 years in prison for the initial shooting.

Officer Bishop had served with the Guntersville Police Department for five years and had previously served with the Marshall County Sheriff's Office. He is buried in Arab Cemetery, Arab, Marshall County, Alabama.
