Police were called around 8 a.m. following reports of a burglary. Police said the owner of the home had an order of protection against the man. John Wussler had lived at the house previously and had returned to gather some property, police said. When police arrived, he fled the backyard by jumping the fence. An officer chased him on foot through a nearby apartment complex, where a fight began. As the officer drew a Taser, the suspect allegedly removed a handgun from his waistband and pointed it at the officer, who exchanged weapons and shot and killed him.
