Police say they were called Sunday night to a home on the 3400 block of Mill Run Road to respond to a domestic dispute. 

When authorities arrived, a woman said her husband, Brian Garber, physically assaulted her and her mother, before fleeing the scene.

About an hour later, the woman called 911 again stating Garber was across the street at his parent’s home and was in possession of a gun. 

When authorities arrived at the home, they attempted to make contact with the suspect.  Police were then involved in a shooting with Garber, who was killed at the scene.

Three deputies and a supervisor, who were involved in the incident, were placed on an eight day administrative leave, per policy.
