Special Agent Garland Fields was shot and killed during an investigation in Swainsboro, Georgia, while making a routine check on a stranger attempting to sell a rifle at a cafe.

Agent Fields happened to be eating at the cafe during the sale. A five state alarm followed the shooting and resulted in the capture of the two suspects and their female companions near Keysville.

Agent Fields had been with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for only three weeks. He was survived by his wife and two daughters.
