Nicolas Blane Dixon

Deputy Sheriff Nicolas Dixon was shot and killed following a vehicle pursuit of a stolen vehicle at approximately 11:15 pm.

The vehicle was believed to have been connected to several burglaries and car break-ins over the previous days. A vehicle pursuit started when deputies attempted to stop it. Multiple suspects then fled on foot after the car crashed. Deputy Dixon pursued one of the suspects and exchanged shots with him in the 600 block of Highland Avenue.

Deputy Dixon was fatally shot during the exchange and the suspect was seriously wounded. Deputy Dixon was transported to a local hospital where he died shortly after midnight.

A second suspect was apprehended approximately eight hours later and the two remaining suspects were apprehended the following day. One of the men who was taken into custody was charged with murder.

Deputy Dixon had served with the Hall County Sheriff's Office for three years. He is survived by his wife, two sons, parents, two brothers, and grandparents.

I never met Blane Dixon, but had the honor of meeting and photographing his family this past week. His wife is beautiful, his mom and dad friendly and welcoming. His brothers gentlemen with kind and funny significant others. It’s easy to imagine what Blane must of been like after meeting the people closest to him. I am glad I got to learn about him, meet great people, and capture his kids with family while celebrating his life.
