Sheriff Goven C. Mills
End of Watch: Tuesday, September 13, 1927
Sheriff Mills was shot and killed when he noticed a suspicious car parked on the side of a road as he and his wife drove by. He had another deputy back him up and they confronted two men inside of the car. One of the men produced a gun and held the two officers at gunpoint. When one of the men went to disable Sheriff Mills' car the sheriff attempted to disarm the other suspect. The suspect opened fire, mortally wounding Sheriff Mills and wounding the other deputy.
