On their way to the residence, officers received a second 911 call of a man with a rifle acting aggressively heading east on Tisbury. Officers located the subject shortly after, who was carrying a long-barreled rifle, in the 2400 block of Tisbury Way. 

The subject threatened officers with the rife, and officers defended themselves in response. The suspect sustained a single gunshot wound.
