DUNWOODY, Ga. (AP) -- A Dunwoody man is facing a murder charge after police say he threw an Atlanta man from the fifth-floor balcony of an apartment building in Atlanta's northern suburbs.
Dunwoody police say 24-year-old Barrett Ricks was taken into custody Wednesday. Police said in a statement that Ricks attacked 31-year-old Isaac C. Herrington of Atlanta before they say he threw him off the balcony.
Police said the death happened early Wednesday morning at the Axis at Perimeter Apartments in Dunwoody. Jail records indicate that Ricks lives in the complex, and police describe the two men as casual acquaintances. It wasn't known early Friday whether Ricks has an attorney.
