Around 2:07 p.m., Pike County 911 dispatch got a call from Michael Faries, asking police to respond because he and his wife were starving, and someone was shooting at them. A deputy and a Petersburg police officer responded to the home several minutes later, where they were greeted by Faries' wife who initially wouldn't let them inside. Officers said because he had called 911, they had to check on his well-being. Within seconds after officers entered the home, the Pike County Sheriff's deputy shot and killed Faries.
