Brown County Sheriff's officials will honor Vic Stacy, the citizen who with an Early police officer exchanged gunfire with Charles Conner at the Peach Tree RV Park on July 29, at Monday's meeting of the Brown County Commissioners Court.
Sheriff's officials will present Stacy with a Certificate of Valor, an award the sheriff's office created for Stacy, Sheriff Bobby Grubbs said.
"It's one we created for his situation," Grubbs said. "I just feel like we needed to honor him for what he did. He really went above and beyond what was expected of anybody."
Conner, a resident of the RV park, shot and killed a man and a woman who also lived there in a dispute over the couple's dogs, sheriff's officials said earlier. Law enforcement officials from multiple agencies rushed to the scene. Early police Sgt. Steven Means, the first officer to arrive, and Stacy exchanged gunfire with Conner, who died at the scene.
Stacy was widely hailed as a hero and referred to by many as the "Good Samaritan" shooter. Stacy has claimed he was no hero.
Commissioners meet at 9 a.m.
