VERO BEACH – The Indian River County Commission voted unanimously to rename 28th Avenue in Gifford to Deputy Garry Chambliss Memorial Avenue.

In the coming weeks, new signs will be placed along 28th Avenue between 41st Street and 45th Street denoting the change, just north of Vero Beach in Gifford.

“The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office will forever remain mindful of the tragic loss of one of our own. This befitting tribute to Garry will serve as a reminder of his honorable dedication to his family, the community, and our agency. Our detectives continue to work diligently to bring his killer to justice,” Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar stated.

Deputy Garry Chambliss died last month after he was caught in the crossfire during a shootout between two men. One suspect has been arrested near Vero Beach, the other is still at large.

Anyone with information about the homicide of Deputy Garry Chambliss is encouraged to contact Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273-TIPS (8477) or tcwatch.org. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.00 for tips leading to an arrest in this case.
