After arriving officers observed King in the garage of the home. When King exited the garage, he pointed a handgun at a police officer, who fired at him in response.

King then fled on foot inside the residence. Officers chased and eventually arrested him.  

No residents were injured during the incident. King was treated and released from a local hospital for an injury he sustained before police had arrived.   

None of the responding officers were injured. Officials said two of the officers have been placed on administrative leave for discharging their weapons during the incident.
