According to Stillwater Police, officers responded to a welfare check on a man reported to be suicidal.
The man called dispatch and told the operator he had nothing left to live for and was considering jumping into oncoming traffic.
Officials released the 911 call, in which Domingues tells the operator he is armed.
- “911 OP: YOU SAID THE WEAPONS ARE IN YOUR WAISTBAND?

He reported he had extensive mental health issues stemming from his childhood and was on medications and in therapy. He added that he was carrying a beer with him down the street.
- “911 OP: DID SOMETHING HAPPEN TODAY THAT'S CAUSED YOU TO WANT TO DO THIS?
- CALLER: I HAVE BEEN CUTTING UP MY STOMACH AND MY CHEST THIS PAST DAY OR TWO.
- 911 OP: ARE YOU BLEEDING NOW? ARE YOU IN NEED OF MEDICAL ATTENTION?
- CALLER: I AM THINKING ABOUT WALKING INTO TRAFFIC.”
When officers got to the scene, they try to talk to him but said he pulled out a pistol and knife and two officers fired.
The two officers have not been identified but are on administrative leave.
