Marshal was shot on Friday night while she responded to a 911 call from home about a domestic situation. The GA Bureau of Investigation stated that homeowners had called the police to take the woman out from some house that wasn’t hers.
When the police arrived, the woman, Jessica Worsham, pulled out a gun and killed Marshall. She was then shot and killed by another deputy.
Marshal had three kids!
“She didn’t like sitting behind the desk,” her friend Wanda Johnson told 11 Alive. “She’s felt the need to serve and protect out on the streets and try to make a difference, so this is just heartbreaking. It’s just tragic for know that she lost her life doing what she loved.”
“She left her family to go out and protect others,” she added. “It’s just devastating. It’s senseless that this happens. She wanted to go after her dreams and that she wanted to provide for her family.”
Rebecca Schrader, a close friend of Marshall’s, shared how much she loved her job.
“Her whole thing about being a police officer was seriously just to protect people because they needed it,” she said. “She also loved her cowboy boots. She loved her big wheels and trucks. She was awesome. I must tell you that her life really was her friends and was mainly her kids.”
A couple of years ago, Marshall lost her son on the same date she died.
“She had lost a son, and the anniversary of his death is today as well. She died on the same day that her son died. November 8th,” said Johnson, adding that she and her husband “are on the way to the cemetery now to light a candle on his grave. I know Austin greeted her with open arms. He was probably running for the first time ever… running to his mom.”
