A Georgia Sheriff’s deputy has tragically passed away three days after she was shot while responding to a domestic dispute.

CBS News reported that the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office identified the deputy as Lena Marshall, who went by her middle name of Nicole.

“As Sheriff, and on behalf of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, it is with a heavy heart that I advise you all that we lost Deputy Lena Marshall around 3:50 pm today,” Sheriff Janis G. Mangum said in a statement. “Please respect the privacy of Deputy Marshall’s family at this difficult time.”

Marshall was reportedly shot on Friday night while responding to a 911 call from a home about a domestic situation. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said that homeowners had called the police to remove a woman from the home who didn’t live there. When police arrived, the woman, who has been identified as Hoschton resident Jessica Worsham, pulled out a gun and opened fire, killing Marshall. Worsham was then shot and killed by another deputy.

Marshall was a mother of three whose own mother was in law enforcement, so this job was always in her blood.

“She didn’t like sitting behind the desk,” her friend Wanda Johnson told 11 Alive. “She’s felt the need to serve and protect out on the streets and try to make a difference, so this is just heartbreaking. It’s just tragic for know that she lost her life doing what she loved.”

“She left her family to go out and protect others,” she added. “It’s just devastating. It’s senseless that this happens. She wanted to go after her dreams and that she wanted to provide for her family.”

Marshall’s friend Rebecca Schrader also remembered how much she loved her job and her family.

“Her whole thing about being a police officer was seriously just to protect people because they needed it,” she said. “She also loved her cowboy boots. She loved her big wheels and trucks. She was awesome. I must tell you that her life really it was her friends and was mainly her kids.”

Sadly, Marshall lost a son years ago on the very same date that she passed away.

“She had lost a son, and the anniversary of his death is today as well. She died on the same day that her son died. November 8th,” said Johnson, adding that she and her husband “are on the way to the cemetery now to light a candle on his grave. I know Austin greeted her with open arms. He was probably running for the first time ever… running to his mom.”

Rest in peace, Deputy Marshall.

[VIDEO] Actress Jurnee Smollett Plays Race Card in Call to ‘Free Jussie’ — ‘Stop Locking Up Our People’

Published

Jussie Smollett’s sister, actress Jurnee Smollett, is calling for Cook County to “#FreeJussie” following her brother’s sentencing Thursday, telling her followers they should advocate for his release — because of disparate incarceration between black and white Americans — even if they believe he is guilty.

Jurnee Smollett’s call for Cook County to “#FreeJussie” comes after her brother was sentenced to 150 days in jail for staging a fake hate crime against himself in January 2019.

“Black Americans are incarcerated in state prisons at nearly five times the rate of White Americans,” she wrote in her Instagram caption. “Jussie is innocent. And… you don’t have to believe in his innocence to believe he should be free.”

The actress included the hashtags “Free Jussie” and “Stop Locking Up Our People.”

In January 2019, Smollett had claimed he was physically attacked by two men wearing red hats who put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him, before eventually yelling, “This is MAGA country!” in reference to former President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan.

On Thursday, Judge James Linn sentenced Smollett to 150 days in jail, 30 months of probation, restitution of $120,106, and a fine of $25,000.

“You’re just a charlatan, pretending to be a victim of a hate crime,” Judge Linn told Smollett during Thursday’s sentencing, adding that the actor’s “very name has become an adverb for ‘lying.’”

“Your performance on the witness stand, this can only be described as pure perjury,” the judge added. “You committed hour upon hour upon hour of pure perjury.”

Smollett is now a convicted felon.

The actor repeatedly shouted, “I am not suicidal, and I am innocent” as he was being hauled off to jail on Thursday.

On Saturday, Smollett’s brother Jocqui Smollett reported that the actor has been placed in a psych ward at the Cook County jail.

Wisconsin Waiter Shot in the Face by Two Women After Forgetting Their Hamburger

Two women in Wisconsin have been charged with first-degree intentional homicide after shooting a restaurant server in the face after he forgot to bring one of the hamburgers they ordered.

Bryanna Johnson and Breanta Johnson, both 20 years old, were in a group of four at a George Webb restaurant in Wauwatosa. This group was being “impatient and rude”, according to one of the restaurant staff members.

One of the women in the group was even asked to leave, which she did but only for a brief period of time before returning to the establishment. Later, while the group of women was up by the register, one of them punched their 26-year-old server in the face, then proceeded to pull out a handgun and shot the victim in the face while he was lying on the ground.

The victim, who was, fortunately, able to survive the gunshot wound, told the police that the altercation was a result of the women’s order missing a hamburger. Apparently, that’s what this man’s life was worth to these women. A single hamburger.

Bryanna and Breanta Johnson’s bond is set at $100,000 and are scheduled to appear in court for preliminary hearings on February 15.
