Heroic acts by fast-acting members of law enforcement likely saved lives Friday when a shootout occurred by the bustling town square shortly before lunchtime, following a shooting at Oak Trail Shores (OTS) that left a deputy mortally wounded.

Officers – including Sheriff Roger Deeds – fired a steady hail of bullets at the armed suspect as civilians and city employees went diving for cover. They continued blasting even as a shout of “Officer down!” rang out when one of their own was felled by a bullet from Ricky Don McCommas’ assault rifle.
