A preliminary investigation revealed that the LPSO had secured a domestic violence warrant for the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Jessie A. Hudnall of Whitehall.

During the incident, Hudnall and deputies reportedly exchanged gunfire and Hudnall was struck.

He was transported to a local hospital where he died of his injuries.
