George Howard Hall

Officer George Hall was shot and killed after he and his partner responded to a call of two men breaking into cars.

Upon the officers' arrival, the suspects fled into the woods and Officer Hall gave chase. He apprehended both suspects and as he was handcuffing one of them, the other shot him in the chest with a handgun. The two suspects were later arrested by other officers.

Officer Hall's 17 year-old killer was convicted of murder and sentenced to life. He was denied parole in 2008 and again in 2014.

Officer Hall had been employed with the Metro Nashville Police Department for 18 months.
