Hours after a standoff in Stockbridge ended with three bodies found inside a home, Henry County Police detailed the events that transpired over 17 hours.
Henry County Police Chief Mark Amerman said it all started with a 911 call and two officers going to a home in the Eagle Ridge subdivision in Stockbridge. After unsuccessful attempts to communicate with people inside, the officers, who were also on the SWAT team, went into the home with force.
At that point, shots were fired inside the home and both officers were struck. Chief Amerman identified the officers as Keegan Merritt and Taylor Webb. Merritt was shot in the hand while Webb was shot in the chest and hip.
