During the apparent wrap-up of a 50-lbs $30K marijuana purchase sting conducted by the DEA, FBI and local police, a DEA agent accidentally discharged his weapon into a vehicle holding the unarmed and compliant Ferryman and three other people. The bullet pierced the car window and went through Ferryman’s torso, killing him. The agent first claimed self-defense; the agency tried to lay fault with Ferryman’s father for raising him improperly. The DEA paid a substantial but unidentified settlement five years later.
