Authorities identified the man as 31-year-old Jason Glover. The Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from Glover’s girlfriend around 11 p.m., saying Glover had threatened to kill her and was armed with a handgun.
Deputies found Glover sitting in his vehicle outside the residence.
Investigators said they saw he was armed when he left the vehicle, pointed his gun at deputies, who then told him to drop the weapon.
Authorities said Glover ignored deputies, so a deputy fired and struck him twice.
Officials took Glover to Louisiana State University Interim Public Hospital in New Orleans. He died of his injuries Saturday morning.
Glover served in the early part of the war in Operation Iraqi Freedom and returned to St. Tammany with significant injuries from the war, according to authorities.
“This is truly a tragic situation,” said St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Jack Strain. “Since his return from Afghanistan, this young man has struggled greatly to adjust and to recover from his experience. Sadly, he and his family were ultimately unable to find the help he truly needed. Today, the thoughts and prayers of the Sheriff’s Office go out to this family during this very difficult time.”
