Father, son choke kidnapper, shoot him 5 times during robbery…#2A



A kidnapper was choked and shot five times during a deadly confrontation after he forced a father and son to drive to an ATM at gunpoint early Wednesday, DeKalb County police said.

Police dont expect to file charges against Roy Farrell, 39, and his 16-year-old son, who were first confronted by the suspect at The Oaks at Stonecrest Apartment Homes on Evans Mill Road.

This was a justified shooting (self-defense), DeKalb police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.

The father and son were questioned by police, but were released.

The suspect initially approached the son outside his home and asked for marijuana, according to a police report. When the son, who was not identified, said he didnt have any, the suspect told the teen to ask his father for a cigarette.
