Listash Browder

Deputy Sheriff Listash Browder was slain after being stabbed and shot with his own service weapon.

He and other deputies had raided a nightclub the previous night but one of the suspects had evaded capture. He was attempting to arrest that suspect but the man stabbed him in the chest during the arrest. The man then gained control of Deputy Browder's service weapon and shot him twice, killing him.

The suspect fled the scene but turned himself in later that day. On March 12th, 1958, the man was convicted of second degree murder.

Deputy Browder was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office for 30 years.
