LENOIR CITY (WATE) - Dozens of people turned out Wednesday morning to remember Loudon County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Scott on the 10 year anniversary of his death in the line of duty.

Family, friends and fellow deputies gathered at the memorial monument at the Loudon County Justice Center to honor Scott's memory and plant a dogwood tree in his honor.

Loudon County Sheriff Tim Guider said Scott was dedicated to his family and community.

"I made Jason a promise, and that promise was to never forget him and the ultimate sacrifice for his community, for us all  by doing what he always wanted to do - what I believe he was meant to do," said Guider.

"He loved everybody and he always wanted to joke, especially with his sister. We just appreciate everyone, especially in this tenth year for everyone coming. And this support we've been given," said Patti Hamil, Scott's mother.

Scott was killed on March 12, 2004 at the home of a Loudon County teen. Deputy Scott had responded to the home for a domestic violence call when he was gunned down by Michael Harvey, then a student at Lenoir City High School.

This led to a standoff that lasted more than 12 hours involving over 100 officers from Loudon and other nearby counties.

Harvey was later found dead in the house, and had apparently been dead during most of the standoff.
