Police say they responded to calls about a domestic disturbance around 3:30 pm from the 5200 block of Charisma Dr. When they arrived, police say they were confronted by a man with a gun. The officers demanded he drop the weapon, but police say he brandished the gun at them in a threatening manner, and officers opened fire.

EMS was already on scene and immediately took the man to a hospital. His status is unknown.

Midlothian Police say the investigation is still in its early stages and they will release more information as things develop.
