The jury heard two statements purportedly made by Wheeler at the scene that do not address whether he knew Officer Sherrill was alive prior to firing his shot.
Early Life and Education
Noah Sherrill attended Sewanee where he played on both soccer and track teams as well as running track. Additionally, he joined Phi Gamma Delta sorority and studied music – even joining Black Hills Gold Choir during this time period. Music had always been an integral part of his life.
Wheeler was shot, subdued and taken to the hospital. One of the officers’ guns fell from its holster during this struggle, which allowed Wheeler to grab it and begin firing upon them until eventually Wheeler subdued them and subdued him for arrest.
Wheeler was ultimately charged and sentenced to death by the State of Mississippi, represented by Kennie E Middleton and Glenn L White. On appeal he was found innocent; therefore his case has been submitted for further review at the Supreme Court of the United States.
Sherrill graduated from Tate High School in Cantonment, Florida in 2022 and went on to win three-year letters in football, basketball and lacrosse at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Additionally he participated in track and field competition and held NCAA Division II national title in long jump.
