Callahan Community to Host Football Game in Honor of Fallen Deputy Joshua Moyers – Action News Jax

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. — A football game will be held Friday in Callahan honoring Deputy Joshua Moyers.

The late Nassau County sheriff’s deputy was shot during a traffic stop in Callahan last month and died of his injuries two days later.

The sheriff’s office arrested her accused killer, Patrick McDowell, after a five-day manhunt. He faces premeditated first-degree murder and aggravated bodily injury to a police dog.

Law enforcement, K-9 officers, and the community are invited to share their love and support for Moyers and the Sheriff’s Office in keeping their small town safe.
