Chambers County Deputy J’Mar Colin Abel was killed in the line of duty Monday afternoon. Abel was assisting the Roanoke Police Department in a high-speed pursuit of a suspect when he lost control of his vehicle on a curve and crashed. Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall (R) said in a statement, “Alabama’s law enforcement community is saddened tonight to learn of the loss of Chambers County Deputy Sheriff J’Mar Colin Abel, who gave his life while protecting the public."
Chambers County Sheriff Sid Lockhart said that Abel was transported to West Georgia Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased. The suspect was apprehended. Just at age 24 and a two-year veteran of the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office, J'Mar was marking his second anniversary with the Sheriff’s Office on the day he lost his life. He is survived by his fiancée, of whom we had the honor of hand-delivering vital resources to help ease their financial hardship and basic needs.
