Little Rock police say Donald O'Fallon, 43, of 1107 Gilllette in Leawood was the man shot to death by police responding to a domestic disturbance at the address involving O'Fallon and his girlfriend, Tabitha Risley, 29.

Here's the report.

It said Officers Matthew Hoffine and James Anderson responded to a 4:17 p.m. call to the house, where Risley said she'd argued with O'Fallon all day and that he'd struck her in the head. When O'Fallon left the house with a weapon, officers fired on him. He was taken to a hospital, but pronounced dead there at 5:02 p.m.

UPDATE: Sunday afternoon, police provided a more detailed statement. It follows:

On Friday, August 10, 2012 at approximately 4:30 p.m. officers were called to 1107 Gillette to a call of a disturbance. Upon arrival at the scene officers made contact with Ms. Tabitha Risle who was standing outside the residence in the driveway. Ms. Risle was conveying to officers that she was involved in a physical disturbance with Mr. Daniel Keith O’Fallen who was still inside the residence. Mr. O’Fallen then exited the residence as officers were speaking with Ms. Risle. According to officers’ statements, Mr. O’Fallen pointed a hand gun toward the officers and Ms. Risle when he exited the residence. A total of three rounds were fired at Mr. O’Fallen (one officer fired once, the other fired twice) striking him twice. Mr. O’Fallen was transported to Baptist Hospital where he was pronounced deceased by doctors at the hospital.

Officer Matthew Hoffine, a sixth year officer was relieved of duty pending further investigation and administrative procedure. Officer James Anderson, a sixth year officer was relieved of duty pending further investigation and administrative procedure.
