A man was killed after he purportedly pointed his gun at an officer on Saturday night, Garland County Deputy Scott Hinojosa said in a statement.

At about 9:49 p.m., the Garland County sheriff's office received a report about a disturbance between a man, who was seen with a gun, and a woman near the area of 160 to 200 Stanage Drive, Hinojosa said. Arkansas State Police also responded after a Garland County officer requested assistance.

Hinojosa said officers knocked on the door of the home where the purported disturbance was, identified themselves to the occupants and ordered them out of the house. Officers heard "what sounded like the action of a firearm being operated," took cover at different points around the front yard and saw a white male exit the home with a firearm, Hinojosa said.

Officers ordered the man to drop his gun, which he did not do, Hinojosa said.

"The suspect instead pointed the gun at our deputy, was shot by the officers and died at the scene," Hinojosa said. "None of the officers were injured in the shooting."

It was not immediately clear what caused the disturbance between the man and woman, and the names involved in the incident are not being released, Hinojosa said.

An investigation by the Garland County sheriff's office and Arkansas State Police is ongoing, he said.
