Loganville Police Chief Mike McHugh confirmed that early results from a investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are that it was a police bullet that killed Richard Ferri, 41, during an armed standoff in Loganville last weekend. Members of the Loganville Police Department and the Walton County Sheriff’s Office worked together to end the situation.
After a more than 13-hour standoff with police in Loganville during the overnight hours of April 21, 2012, Ferri was found dead inside his home. Twice during the night Ferri had fired on police surrounding the home and they returned fire. At the time, McHugh said he believed it was likely it was a police bullet that struck Ferri, but a GBI investigation was necessary to find out whether that was the case or whether he had died by a self-inflicted gunshot.
