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 2003, the suspect pleaded guilty to murder, three counts of attempted murder, and the unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. He was subsequently sentenced to five life sentences. In 2017, he was denied parole.

Game Warden Hutto was a United States Army veteran and served with the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources - Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries for eight years. He is survived by his daughter, parents, three brothers, and three sisters.

Warden Hutto,
On today, the 20th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army as a member of the 82nd “All-American” Airborne Division. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Airborne All The Way!
