A Georgia sheriff’s deputy and her brother were shot and killed during a family dispute overnight. Authorities say a “close relative” is being held for questioning.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office confirms Deputy Shakeema Brown Jackson was killed, along with one of her brothers in Newton County early Thursday.

Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat tells Channel 2 Action News that Jackson leaves behind a 17-month-old child.

A close relative is being held for questioning in connection to the murders.

Brown Jackson joined the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office in 2018 as a detention officer and became a deputy just last month.

Co-workers remembered her as cheerful and bubbly and always had a positive disposition no matter how disrespectful inmates had been.

She always greeted them with “good morning,” earning their respect, Labat said.

“It’s a hard time for the sheriff’s office and we are asking for everyone’s prayers, continued prayers,” Labat said.

Grief counselors are available to speak with Fulton County Sheriff’s Office employees.
