On December 23, 2017, then Deputy Holmes attempted to stop a vehicle. The driver, Jackie Wayne Bean spun the car around in the roadway as Holmes approached the vehicle. Bean allegedly showed a firearm and pointed it at Holmes. Holmes reportedly fired at the vehicle multiple times as Bean drove away.
Later in the night, the vehicle was located with Comer’s deceased body inside.
