Marc Andrew McIntyre

Sergeant Marc McIntyre was shot and killed from ambush while responding to a domestic disturbance call on Vineyard Road, near Deason Street, in Griffin.

He and another deputy were walking across the home's yard when a male subject opened fire with a shotgun from an upstairs window. Sergeant McIntyre was killed, and the other deputy was wounded. Other responding deputies were able to rescue Sergeant McIntyre from the front yard. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The man barricaded himself inside the home for several hours. He was eventually taken into custody by members of a regional SWAT team. The man continued to threaten deputies as he was removed from the scene.

Sergeant McIntyre was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Spalding County Sheriff's Office for over 11 years. He is survived by his daughter, son, brother, fiancee, fiancee's son, and granddaughter.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
