Danville Officer Involved Shooting Results In Death

Danville Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that happened early Sunday morning.

Police were called to the 2300 block of North Main Street for a report of a domestic assault happening in the parking lot of a business.

The 22-year-old woman went to her home in the 200 block of Sunset Drive, but the man who attacked her tried to force his way into the home, according to police.

They say evidence supported her allegations of assault, which gave officers probable cause to arrest the man.

Police say they walked up to the man, but he moved away from them and ignored their commands to stop.

According to police, the man got into a car and drove into a nearby wooded area.

Eventually, police say the man got out of the car, but refused to show his hands.

They say police deployed a taser but it didn't contact the man.

That's when police say the man turned and threatened officers, and they fired at him.

Police immediately called for rescue and say the man was taken to Sovah Health in Danville where he was pronounced dead.
