Sergeant Patrick Sondron was shot and killed after he and Deputy Sheriff Daryl Smallwood responded to a neighbor dispute on Hardison Road, near Route 42, near Byron, Georgia, at approximately 5:30 pm.

Two residents in the area were riding ATVs on a roadway when they were confronted by a neighbor who threatened them with a firearm. The victims left the scene and called 911 to report the incident. Sergeant Sondron and Deputy Smallwood responded to the victims' residence and interviewed them. After speaking to them they drove to the suspect's home.

As Sergeant Sondron and Deputy Smallwood exited their patrol cars and began to walk down the driveway towards the home they were both shot by the subject. The original victims witnessed the shooting and again called 911 to report both deputies had been shot.
