Yadkin County Sheriff Ricky Oliver was the county’s Chief Deputy in October 1996. He remembers responding to the scene on I-77 South where Sgt. Gregory Keith Martin was shot and killed.

Not only was that the first time a fellow officer had been killed in the line of duty, but he knew Sgt. Martin as a "good officer" and  "good all around person."
