Fulton County deputy killed in alleged domestic incident

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of Deputy Shakeema Brown Jackson.

Jackson was killed overnight, in an alleged domestic incident.

Sheriff’s Dept. officials say Jackson has been a treasured member of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office since 2018, when she joined the agency as a Detention Officer. She became a Deputy Sheriff just over a month ago.

Jackson is remembered as eager to learn, and always had a positive disposition. Coworkers say she was bubbly, and, no matter how disrespectful inmates may have been, always greeted them with “Good morning,” earning their respect.

“This is a heartbreaking loss for the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office,” says Fulton County Sheriff Patrick “Pat” Labat. “This is a hard time for the Sheriff’s Office, and we ask for your continued prayers.”

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation into the incident.
