Community shows support for Madison County Sheriff’s Department


A deputy remains in critical condition at UMMC after being shot in the head Thursday.

Brad Sullivan is a single father to a nine-year-old little boy. He is an avid baseball coach and well known in Madison County. There is a flood of support on social media. Yesterday alone, the Madison County Sheriff Department’s Facebook page had more than 42,000 visitors.

The board of the First Responders of Mississippi has started raising money for Sullivan. You can join in and pledge your support by texting the word “BRAD” to 601-956-2877.

A statement was posted on Sheriff Randy Tucker’s facebook page.

“On behalf of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, thank you very much for your prayers, thoughts, emails and offers to help in any way possible. We are so very proud to work in Madison County where we are supported neighborhood by neighborhood. Your support means a great deal to law enforcement and we are a grateful family.

As you know, yesterday was a tough day for the County, law enforcement, families and friends due to two of our deputies being shot. One deputy is still in critical condition following surgery late yesterday and the other deputy was treated and released yesterday.”

Once again, thank you for your prayers–that is really what we can all do right now.

Sheriff Tucker also posted to Facebook anyone looking to donate can visit any Bank Plus location and donate in the name of “Bradley Sullivan.”
