WARNER ROBINS -- The GBI released on Saturday the name of a Warner Robins man shot by a Houston County sheriffs deputy after ramming patrol cars as deputies were getting out of them.
Daniel Adam Boghosian, 27, remained in critical condition Saturday at The Medical Center of Central Georgia, stated a GBI news release.
Boghosian led sheriffs deputies on a 20-minute pursuit before he was stopped on Moody Road near Lake Placid Drive.
After deputies had stopped the vehicle, Boghosian started ramming his truck into two Houston County sheriffs vehicles as the deputies were exiting their cars, the release stated. A Houston County sheriffs deputy fired three rounds at Boghosian, two of which struck Boghosian.
The chase started at 2:12 p.m. after a Houston County deputy attempted to stop a blue truck driven by Boghosian for a traffic violation on Ga. 96 near Bonaire Elementary School in Houston County, the release stated.
The pursuit continued on Moody Road, Sandy Run Road, Ga. 247, Ga. 96 and back onto Moody Road until ending after additional deputies arrived and assisted in stopping Boghosian on Moody Road near Lake Placid Drive, the release stated.
The GBI Perry office is conducting the investigation at the request of the Houston County Sheriffs Office.
Upon completion of the investigation, the GBIs information will be provided to the Houston County district attorney to determine whether the use of force was warranted, the release stated.
The GBI declined to release the name of the deputy.
Houston County Sheriff Cullen Talton said Saturday he will release the name in few days.
Hes really shook up, Talton said.
The deputy is on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure in an officer involved shooting. Talton said.
