In an update to a story from last week, the man who was shot by police after he reportedly opened fire on officers responding to a domestic violence call in Fountain on Nov. 20 has died.

Fountain Police say he had been in the hospital for treatment since the incident and that he died the evening of Nov. 25.

The incident began in a residential neighborhood when a woman said her husband was drunk and would not let her leave the home with their son. She escaped to a neighbor’s home and called police. Upon their arrival, the man allegedly began shooting at them and they returned fire. Despite being struck, the suspect continued to resist arrest and a Taser was used.
