A Lonoke County Sheriff`s Deputy is expected to make a full recovery after being shot early Thursday morning. Deputy Vernon Williams was shot at several times when he made a traffic stop at 67/167 and Highway 5. Williams fired back several times, killing the suspect, 22-year old Gregory J. Isobaker, Jr. The Arkansas State Police Department is investigating how Williams and Isobaker got into the struggle that led to the shooting. Williams` bullet-proof vest stopped two bullets, saving his life. His fellow deputy, David Bufford, says that just reminds him why he wears his bullet-proof vest so faithfully. "It makes me that much surer I`ll not leave home without it," Deputy Bufford said. He adds that the vest can be hot and uncomfortable to wear, but that`s a small price to pay if he is hit by a speeding bullet. "It still hurts, hopefully, it keeps the bullet from going inside you, but you`re gonna get bruised," he said. No vest is 100% bullet-proof, but they are an added protection, Bufford said. The can cost between a couple hundred and one-thousand dollars.
