Michael Andrew Norris

Deputy Sheriff Michael Norris succumbed to a gunshot he suffered two days earlier when he and another deputy responded to a call of an armed suicidal man at a home in the 100 block of Haley Lane, in Juliette, at approximately 5:45 pm.

As the deputies approached the front door the subject opened fire with a handgun, wounding both deputies. During the exchange of gunfire the subject was wounded in the leg. He was then taken into custody at the scene.

Deputy Norris was transported to the Macon Medical Center where he was pronounced brain dead the following day, but kept on life support for two days so his organs could be donated.

Deputy Norris had served with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office for two years. He is survived by his wife, parents, and one sibling.

Deputy Norris was in my POST Academy class. I had lunch with him one time during our break from the class room during training. He always had an awesome attitude in the class room and his motivation was contagious and infectious. His drive was unlike any other and you just knew he would make a great Deputy. He motivated others just like we were taught in training and he was a leader with a warrior mindset. Everyday I go to work with his funeral service program laminated hanging above me in my patrol car as a reminder that he made the ultimate sacrifice. I know he is riding shotgun with me and all of the officers and deputies that he made an impact on. Representing SESSION # 24 GPSTC. Forsyth, GA.
