Wednesday marks one year of fatal Floyd County shootings

Wednesday will mark one year since Floyd county dispatch got the frantic call words they will never forget

The call was from Officer Joel White.  He and officer Frank Denzinger responded to a call of a teenager fighting with his mother in Georgetown.

When the deputies arrived, 15-year-old Tyler Dumstorf opened fire with a high-powered military style rifle.

The teen shot both deputies then turned the gun on himself.  Frank Denzinger died, but Joel White survived.

Ten months later, after months of painful rehabilitation, White was back on the job.  Because of his severe hip and leg injuries, he can no longer be a patrolman.

So, he became the department's first evidence technician.  Wednesday, in Frank Denzinger's honor, the Red Cross will hold a blood drive in his hometown.

It will take place at the Greenville Elementary School, on Cross Street in Greenville, from 2 to 7 p.m.
