Man Who Ambushed Ohio Deputy Had Similar Confrontation In 2001

January 03, 2011  | 


The man who killed a Clark County (Ohio) Sheriff's deputy on New Year's Day fired on other deputies during a 2001 confrontation that resulted in his visit to a mental facility, reports the Columbus Dispatch.

Michael Ferryman, 57, who fatally shot Deputy Suzanne Hopper and then died in a gun fight with officers from five agencies, fired at Morgan County (Ohio) Sheriff's deputies from inside a trailer in 2001.

No one was hurt in the earlier incident, and Ferryman was sent to a Columbus psychiatric facility.

This is a terrible tragedy. I feel terrible for the deputy and her family. I want to praise her fellow officers who surrounded that trailer and took care of business. Great job!
