Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: GA   USA   Fri. Apr. 17, 1964
Summary: Officer Ralph Davis, Officer Jerry Everett, and Officer Marvin Gravitt were shot and killed after responding to a suspicious activity call. Officer Everett and Officer Davis were riding together and driving Officer Gravitt home after he had become ill.

During the drive they responded to the call and encountered several subjects stripping a vehicle. Nearby citizens reported hearing what they believed to be firecrackers going off and a search of the area the next day turned up the officer's patrol vehicle. Their bodies were found in a wooded area a short distance away, all handcuffed together, and shot a total of 14 times.

Three suspects were arrested, one of whom was a deputy sheriff who knew the officers. All three were sentenced to death but later had their sentences commuted to life in prison. One of the suspects has since died.
