Alonzo Leroy Landy, 32, was fatally shot by law enforcement officials in Fayette County, Georgia, USA, according to multiple American news reports and a statement from Georgia officials.

A statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said, “On Sunday, November 29, 2020, the GBI was requested by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office to conduct an officer involved shooting investigation at 1720 S Highway 92, Fayetteville, Fayette County, GA.

“Preliminary information indicates that at approximately 3:08 p.m., Alonzo Leroy Landy, 32, called 911 advising that he was telling people to get out of his head and was shooting rabbits. During the phone call, 911 dispatch heard numerous gunshots, and then Landy advised he was barricaded in his house.

“The SWAT team decided they would attempt to deploy a robot inside the house to check on Landy’s whereabouts,” the GBI statement said.

The GBI statement said that, “before the SWAT team could deploy the robot, at approximately 5:12 p.m., Landy exited his residence and began firing an assault rifle at the deputies. A Fayette County Sheriff’s Office deputy returned fire, striking Landy multiple times.”

“Landy was transported by EMS to Piedmont Fayette Hospital where he was pronounced deceased. No officers were injured during this incident.

“The GBI will continue its independent investigation. Upon completion, it will be turned over the Fayette County District Attorney’s Office for review.”

Mr Landy’s father, Arnold Landy, a former cameraman for ZBM, spoke with the broadcaster last night about his loss [about 48 minutes into the video here] saying his son was a veteran and suffered from PTSD, with Mr Landy expressing his grief, saying he now has to tell his 6-year-old grandson that his father has died.
