Lieutenant Mike Vogt was shot and killed while investigating a suspicious vehicle parked on Vernon Grove Road, a dirt road in a rural area of the city. As he drove down the road he observed a man outside of his vehicle drinking beer. When Lieutenant Vogt asked him for his license the suspect, who had outstanding warrants, opened fire on Lieutenant Vogt before he had time to exit his patrol car.

Despite being under fire, he was able to reverse down the road and call for assistance. He was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital, in Atlanta, where he succumbed to his wounds.

A suspect was arrested in connection with Lieutenant Vogt's murder three days later. He was subsequently convicted of murder and sentenced to life without parole.

Lieutenant Vogt had served in law enforcement for over 30 years. He had served with the Chattahoochee Hills Police Department for 14 months and had previously served with the Union City Police Department. He is survived by his wife, four children, five grandchildren, parents, and three brothers.

Your killer got life in prison yesterday. It doesn't seem fair that he gets to keep living while he took that from you. But, that is our justice system. At least he will never see the light of day again. Rest in peace, sir.
