Two arrested in shooting of off-duty Kentucky deputy

Two men have been charged in the death of a Kentucky sheriff’s deputy who was shot while working an off-duty security job last year.

Jesse Johnson, 28, and Marquis Mitchell, 18, were charged with murder in a Jefferson County indictment unsealed Thursday, officials said. They are charged in the death of Jefferson County Deputy Brandon Shirley, 26.

Shirley, who became a deputy in 2019, was killed Aug. 5 in his personal vehicle at a used car lot.

Johnson and Mitchell are scheduled for arraignment on Tuesday. Louisville police Chief Erika Shields said one of the men was arrested with help from U.S. marshals, Floyd County Sheriff’s Office and New Albany Police Department in Indiana, news outlets reported.

It was not immediately clear whether they were represented by attorneys who could comment on their behalf.
