Game Warden Jimmy Hutto succumbed to a gunshot wound received earlier in the month while assisting Fayette County deputies in serving a narcotics warrant at a home.

During the raid, Game Warden Hutto was shot in the lower abdomen by the subject.

Game Warden Hutto was admitted to a local hospital where he remained for two weeks. He was released from the hospital only three days before his death, but had to be re-admitted due to complications.

In December 2013 the man who murdered Game Warden Hutton plead guilty to murder, three counts of attempted murder, and the unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. He was subsequently sentenced to five life sentences.

Game Warden Hutto is survived by his daughter, parents, three brothers, and three sisters.
