Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: Ocmulgee Bluff Equestrian Recreation Area GA   USA   Fri. Mar. 05, 2010
Summary: Officer Chris Upton was shot and killed by a hunter who mistook him for game at the Ocmulgee Bluff Equestrian Recreation Area in Jasper County, Georgia.

He was on patrol at 11:00 pm when he was struck by a shot fired by the hunter. The shooter was in a two-person hunting party hunting coyotes with a high-powered rifle equipped with night vision. After shooting Officer Upton, the hunting party waited over an hour to call 911 to report the incident and failed to render aid. It is believed that this intentional delay in seeking help contributed to Officer Upton's death.

Disposition: In November 2011, the suspect who shot Officer Upton was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, hindering a federal investigation, and hunting violations.
