Jamie Hood

Jamie Hood is accused of fatally shooting Athens-Clarke County Senior Police Officer Elmer 'Buddy' Christian and injuring SPO Tony Howard. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Hood surrendered to authorities in 2011 after a massive manhunt. At the time, Hood was holding nine people hostage. Hood only agreed to end his standoff if it was covered on live television. Hood said that he believed that he would be shot by GBI agents because his brother had been killed in a standoff with police a decade earlier.
