SIGOURNEY–Keokuk County Sheriff Jeff Shipley has a new gun he will carry with him as his “duty weapon.” The gun, a Glock 22 fourth generation, was ordered by Deputy Sergeant Eric Stein shorlty before he was killed in the line of duty in April.
“I will carry that weapon as long as I am here,” said Shipley. “I think it is probably going to be a tradition, when I am gone I will pass it on to the next guy who takes my place.”
