SULLIVAN COUNTY TENNESSEE:   Today Sullivan County Sheriff Deputy Sgt. Steve Hinkle succumbed to gunshot wounds he received three days earlier.

Sgt. Hinkle served 27 years with Sullivan County Sheriff Department. He was 65 years of age.

Sgt. Hinkle has served in various areas of Sullivan County Sheriff Department. He had just recently returned to Patrol Division from School Resource Officer.

Investigators say deputies responded to a residence to check the welfare of 44-year-old Jackie Scott Pendergrass. Sheriff Jeff Cassidy says Pendergrass shot at deputies as they approached the house, forcing them to retreat. After trying to communicate with Pendergrass, he opened fire on the deputies who then returned fire.

Hinkle was struck during the exchange of gunfire.

Investigators say they later found Pendergrass shot dead inside the house.

Sgt. Hinkle has been fighting for his life since Saturday but passed away today.
