Former Tyler Based U.S. Marshal Is Shot And Killed

A deputy U.S. Marshal with East Texas ties is shot and killed in an apparent shootout with police in Tennessee. Memphis police say two officers tried to pull 46-year-old Mary Fisher over Sunday for driving erratically. Fisher kept driving to her home, and when the officers told her to get out of the car, she reportedly opened her door, pulled out a gun and started shooting at them. One officer was hit in the leg before police returned fire, killing Fisher. The other officer was not hurt. Mary Fisher had worked for the U.S. Marshal's Office since the early 1990's, working in the Tyler and Sherman offices from 2001 to 2002. Those that knew her say her behavior on Sunday was completely out of character.

"It's a real shock," said David Jolley, U.S. Marshal. "It's a really, really sad event. We feel for her and her family."

"Everything that I understand with Mary, she was the consummate supervisor, the consummate employee for the Marshal's Office while she was here," said David Sligh, Chief Deputy for U.S. Marshal's Office Eastern District. "She was held in high regard, and it's very surreal. It's very difficult for people to believe this happened." The officers involved in the shooting have been taken off duty while the investigation continues.
