A man, now identified as 31-year-old William John Dominguez, was shot and killed by Stillwater police Wednesday night after he pulled a pistol and knife on the responding officers, officials said.
Before the shooting, Dominguez called dispatch around 8 p.m. He told the operator he had nothing left to live for and was considering jumping into oncoming traffic.
The phone call could be considered disturbing.
Police patrolled North Boomer Road, looking for the man.
While police were patrolling, the caller told dispatch he is armed.
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.
They talk for a few more minutes. Then, the Dominguez stops mid-sentence, and the line went quiet.
When officer arrived on the scene, you could hear them talk with Dominguez before the shooting through dash camera video.
“He's right there, yeah he's right there in the bushes, 20 feet from that pole. He's still walking southbound. Hey buddy come here. No, don't, don't do it. (Gunfire) Shots fired."
Police said that was when the Dominguez pulled out a pistol and knife, and two officers fired their guns.
Dominguez died on scene.
OSBI agents are taking over the investigation. Friday, March 30, OSBI said Dominguez' next of kin in California was notified of his death.
Officials told News 9, the two officers involved are on administrative leave.
