Jeffery Matthew McCoy, Probation and Parole Officer
Midwest City, OK
End of Watch: May 18, 2012
On May 18, 2012, Probation and Parole Officer Jeffery Matthew McCoy was shot and killed while performing a field visit at a home in Midwest City, Oklahoma.
A male subject who lived at the home, but who was not the focus of Officer McCoy’s visit, answered the door and immediately pushed Officer McCoy off of the front porch. The man then attacked him and was able to gain control of his service weapon during the ensuing struggle. The subject shot Officer McCoy at least once before fleeing back into his home.
The man fired at officers from the Midwest City Police Department as they arrived at the scene. He was taken into custody moments later after he exited the home again.
Officer McCoy had served with the Oklahoma Department of Corrections for seven years. He was survived by his wife and two children.
