Deputy Sheriff Henry Privett was shot and killed with his own service weapon by a prisoner who was attempting to escape the Fulton County Jail.

He was sitting in an office completing paperwork when the prisoner entered, gained control of his weapon, and shot him in the arm and chest. Deputy Privett was transported to a local hospital where he died a short time later.

Deputy Privett was a Korean War veteran of the U.S. Army and had served with the Fulton County Sheriff's Office for four years. He was survived by his wife and two daughters.

I currently work for the Fulton County Sheriff's Office. I want the family to know that I still tell the other staff about Deputy Privett's sacrifice. We are keeping his memory alive. I never knew him and wish I knew more about his service.
