Clark County authorities say a man killed himself after they used a Taser on him during a domestic call.

Sheriff Gene Kelly said the situation started with a domestic call around 4:30 a.m. on the 3000 block of Authur Road.

The situation involved a woman and a man with a gun.

According to Kelly, deputies used a Taser on the man after he came out of the home with the gun.

The woman was unharmed.
