The suspect was rushed to JPS Hospital where he died.

The incident started as a domestic disturbance at a business in the area, police said.

Police said an employee’s ex-boyfriend was at the location and had threatened the employee/ex-girlfriend with a weapon.

Officers arrived and were able to locate the suspect in a vehicle.

Police said he would not comply with their orders and pulled out a gun.  That’s when officers shot him.

Alex Wall, who said he witnessed the shooting, told CBS11, “They didn’t do anything that I don’t think they should have because they were telling him to get down. I know that they fired at least one warning shot in the air before anything ever happened.”
