A 43-year-old man died after police in Ohio were called to a domestic dispute on Wednesday in Mineral City
News outlets report that Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a domestic call from a woman who said she had a protection order against her. She said she was hiding in the home for safety.
Deputies said they tried to de-escalate the situation multiple times and that they were aware the man had a gun on him, because the man alerted deputies when they arrived.
Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s say the man attempted to enter the home and a deputy used a a less lethal beanbag round to stop the suspect.
Officials say this did not work, because the suspect turned around and fired a shot at the deputies, in return, the deputies fired back and killed the man.
