A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting Friday.

At 6:06 p.m., Corpus Christi police officers were dispatched to an apartment complex at the 3000 block of Antelope for a domestic disturbance.

In a YouTube video, Corpus Christi Police Chief Mike Markle said a woman called the police explaining her boyfriend had hurt himself, injured her, had weapons and threatened to use those weapons at officers if they arrived on scene.

"It seemed liked a potential violent encounter," Markle said in the video.

Markle added in the video, shortly after officers arrived, they made contact with the suspect who brandished a long-arm weapon, forcing one officer to discharge his city issued weapon.

"The suspect was struck and has succumbed to his injuries on scene," Markle said.

The Corpus Christi Police Department officers who were involved will be placed on paid administrative leave, in accordance with current department practice and policy, Markle said.

Details on the woman and the deceased man are unknown at this time, Markle said.

The case is an active and ongoing investigation. If you have any information pertaining to this incident, call the Corpus Christi Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at 361-886-2840. Anyone who would like to keep their identity secret and still provide information to detectives should call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477 or submit the tip online at p3tips.com/TipForm.aspx?ID=343&C=&T=.
