    The Huntsville TimesLimestone County Sheriff Mike BlakelyELKMONT - A man is in critical condition at Huntsville Hospital after he was shot by a Limestone County Sheriff's deputy after he threatened officers with a shotgun, said Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely.
    Last night shortly before 10 p.m., Blakely said three officers went to the home of Gary Leon Cox on New Garden Road in order to arrest him and Tressa Shores.
    According to reports, Shores' husband called Elkmont officials and claimed Shores, 48, and Cox, 47, stole a large bottle of his prescription muscle relaxers.
    An Elkmont deputy and two Limestone deputies went to the home to make the arrests.
    As one of the deputies knocked on the front door, Cox eventually opened the door holding a shotgun at his side, attempting to hide it behind his leg, Blakely said.
    The deputy repeatedly asked Cox to drop the gun, but Blakely said as Cox began to raise the gun and point it toward the deputy, Cox was shot.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
