Sheriff honors woman who fired her gun to help save deputy’s life


ST. GEORGE — “I saw a deputy was in trouble, and I just acted,” said 70-year-old Sherry King, the woman who courageously intervened in a potentially life-threatening struggle between an officer and a suspect in Beaver Dam, Arizona, earlier this year.

King was presented with a “Lifesaving Award” by Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster in Kingman, Arizona, Monday for her role in helping stop a man who was allegedly trying to pull a gun from a deputy.Law enforcement personnel prepare to search for a suspect at large in Beaver Dam, Ariz., April 27, 2018 | File photo by Joseph Witham, St. George NewsThe incident triggered a multiagency manhunt after the suspect, 34-year-old Darren Bruce Boone, fled the scene when King fired a warning shot into the air.

“If he had got the deputy’s gun, there would be somebody dead,” King told St. George News.
