Ulysses Jackson

Officer Ulysses Jackson was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a man for chasing a woman with a knife.

He twice subdued the man, but did not handcuff him, as it was against department policy to do so. The suspect then began to struggle with Officer Jackson again, gained control of his weapon, and shot him in the head. He then shot him in the head five more times as he lay on the ground. The suspect was later shot and killed by other officers.

Officer Jackson had served with the Chattanooga Police Department for 18 months. He was survived by his wife.
