LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Reagan County Sheriff's Deputy who lost his life in the line of duty Wednesday night in Big Lake had Lubbock ties. Josh Mitchell's wife, Jill, has family in Lubbock County. 

The Mitchell's shared a Facebook page and at one time an image of them together in front of the Lubbock County Courthouse was their profile picture. The two are also photographed in November of last year at a Shallowater YFL football game – a photograph shared on Facebook.

The man accused of shooting and killing Deputy Mitchell, Marcus Madison, is in custody. The Lubbock County Sheriff's Department SWAT team assisted with the standoff that led to Madison's arrest.  The LSO also provided an escort to the vehicle that brought Mitchell's body to Lubbock Thursday morning for an autopsy.
