MIDLAND COUNTY, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – The Midland County Sheriff’s Office will pay their respects to one of their own today.
Deputy Mike Naylor was shot and killed in the line of duty back in 2014.
Sgt. Naylor was serving a warrant in the 3800 block of North County Road 1247 when he was shot and killed by the suspect.
Since his death, the Midland County community, especially the late Sheriff Gary Painter, made sure to honor his legacy in Midland County. Friends and colleagues often remember Naylor as a man who was always happy and someone who cared deeply for the community he served.
The tradition will continue today at the Midland County Sheriff’s office. The ceremony will begin at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
