US marshal shot, killed trying to arrest fugitive
from Sun Herald
The deputy U.S. marshal who died Tuesday after a shootout with a suspect near Baton Rouge knew he wanted to work in law enforcement while he was growing up in Jackson County, Mississippi. Josie Wells, 27, came from a family with a criminal justice background and knew as a kid that it was what he wanted to do, said lifelong friend Alex McGee, also a fellow East Central High graduate and football player.
