Officers J. Hooper and G. Zawodny were present when one of the two shot and killed Gary Willis. According to police, one of the officers fatally shot Willis as the other was struggling to take a gun away from him as they attempted to serve him an order that required him to surrender his guns. Police said Willis answered the door around 5:17 a.m. with a gun in his hand but put it by the door after answering. As the officers began to serve him the order, though, he became irate and grabbed the gun. Willis then fired the gun, leading to one officer to attempt to take the gun away, police said. The second officer then fired their service weapon, striking Willis, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
