I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot no deputy.
The line from the song is, 'I shot the sheriff, but I did'nt shoot no deputy' This line is repeated in the song, so no-one shot the deputy. Not so! Clearly somebody shot the deputy. It wasn't Bob or Eric, and I know I didn't do it so that narrows it down a bit. If you didn't shoot the deputy then add yourself as NOT GUILTY. Eventually we'll catch the culprit.
