Deputy Sheriff Jerry Inman was shot and killed when he interrupted a robbery in progress at a local convenience store at the intersection of I-44 and Route N.

He had stopped at the store while on patrol but was unaware that it was being robbed. When the subject saw the patrol car he ran out of the store and opened fire with a .22 caliber handgun. One of the rounds bounced off of the windshield of the car and struck Deputy Inman in the collar bone and heart.

Deputy Inman was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had served with the Greene County Sheriff's Office for two years.

I remember Deputy Inman very well. I was 11 yrs old and had a huge crush on him. He rode with my dad for awhile when he started in training. He came to our house when we lived out Old Cherry Street Rd by McGraws Cemetery to eat supper with us. I sat right next to him thinking he was the Bomb. I have original picture of the picture on here along with the article. He has forever lived in my heart. I still think of him often.
