Deputy Sheriff Khomas Revels was shot and killed when he attempted to take action when he interrupted a robbery while he was off duty.

He and another jailer had entered a grocery store on Lake Bradford Road, near West Orange Avenue, not realizing that a robbery was taking place. Deputy Revels and the other deputy were off duty but in uniform and unarmed. The three armed offenders had the two deputies lay on the ground next to four patrons. The men then robbed the deputies of their money before one of the subjects stated he was going to kill all of the victims.

The statement prompted Deputy Revels to jump to his feet and struggle with one of the subjects. The other deputy came to his assistance. As they struggled with the man one of the other subjects shot both deputies multiple times. Deputy Revels was fatally wounded while the other deputy suffered serious wounds.

All three subjects were eventually apprehended. They were convicted of multiple charges related to the murder and robbery and sentenced to life in prison.
