Chesterfield County police say 11 weapons have been recovered from the home of an attorney who was fatally shot by officers following a standoff.
Police said Wednesday the weapons included two submachine guns. Other items taken from the residence of 45-year-old Richard C. Ferris II include an bottle of anti-anxiety medication, an empty carton of beer and some of his writings.
Police say Ferris was fatally shot Jan. 28 after he confronted officers twice and fired on them.
Maj. Terry Patterson told The Richmond Times-Dispatch that police hope the items recovered from Ferris' house will help them understand what led to the standoff.
