Sheriff Jarrett was shot and killed while attempting to arrest an escapee from the Pineville Jail.

The suspect gave up without a fight when Sheriff Jarrett located him at his home. He asked if he could go upstairs to get some cloths he wanted to take with him back to jail. Seeing no reason to object, Sheriff Jarrett let him go and went outside to wait. When the suspect returned he opened fire on the sheriff, killing him instantly. The suspect was later shot and killed by a posse.

Sheriff Jarrett had served with the agency for 4 years. His father was sheriff of McDonald County from 1876 to 1884.
