Deputy Jerry Davis was shot and killed while he and another deputy were serving commitment papers on a mental patient. The suspect grabbed the other deputy's service weapon and shot Deputy Davis several times.

The 32 year-old suspect, who was charged with murder, was found incompetent to stand trial and committed in a mental institution. In 2010 the murder charge was dismissed. A year later he was transferred to the dementia ward of a Warsaw, North Carolina nursing home where he will stay the rest of his life.

Deputy Davis is survived by his wife, son, and two daughters.

This past Thursday we had another memorial in your honor by Sheriff Johnson and the Alamance County Sheriffs Dept. I got to wear my class A uniform this time. Everybody kept saying how much I look like you. I regret not ever being able to meet you, but I'm glad to keep your legacy alive. I only hope I can be as great an officer as you were. Even though I never met you I love you and I cant wait to finally meet you.

Your Grandson
