The SIU has updated that four officers responded to this call, which initially came in as a disturbance inside a trailer on Road 40. When they went inside, they reported seeing a 49-year-old man with a gun struggling with a 43-year-old woman. 

When officers tried to contact the two people, the man fired shots at the officers. Officer Anna Ramos fired back “with deadly force,” according to the SIU update. PPD backed up as the man continued shooting, re-entering when he had stopped firing.
