Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: SC   USA   Thu. Jul. 19, 1979
Summary: Sergeant Robert Mobley was shot and killed while stopping a person on a motorcycle.

Sergeant Mobley initiated the traffic stop of a motorcycle due to a non-working brake light. He was left handed and was sitting in his patrol car in driver seat with door open to protect the motorcycle while writing the citation when the motorcycle operator snuck up from behind patrol car, took Sergeant Mobley's sidearm out from holster and emptied the chamber into Sergeant Mobley. When a deputy a deputy arrived on the scene the suspect retrieved Sergeant Mobley's shotgun out of the patrol car and attempted to shoot the deputy but could not chamber the round.

The suspect was taken into custody and was found guilty initially but the verdict was overturned when the suspect was deemed mentally incompetent to stand trial. The suspect spent 25 years in a state mental facility and was released in 2005.

Sergeant Mobley had served with the agency for 21 years and had previously served with the United States Marine Corps. He was survived by his wife, three children, and two grandchildren.
