Lt. Nolan Anderson, 50, a 25-year veteran of the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s department, was on-duty and in uniform when he was shot and killed by fellow deputies during a domestic violence dispute with his wife, reports WGNO.com.

“No other deputy shot, no other deputy injured,” Louisiana State Trooper Melissa Matey said.

Deputies are investigating why Anderson was at his daughter’s residence in Laplace, Louisiana at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday when he radioed for deputies to come to the home.

When they arrived, the situation reportedly  escalated quickly and Anderson allegedly refused to drop his weapon on command, forcing his fellow deputies to fatally wound him to protect themselves and his wife, who was later taken to the hospital with wounds consistent with pistol whipping.

“He was firing into the air, the weapon was pointed at deputies and they had to take lethal action in order to protect them and also to protect Lt. Anderson’s wife,” Matey said.

St. John Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre described Anderson as a “good officer” who made a bad decision.

“Very good officer. Life if full of decisions. He made a decision today; we had to make a decision to use lethal force. Wish we could change it. We can’t. Hopefully the sun will come up tomorrow,” Tregre said.

“I have experienced tragedy in St. John Parish,” Tregre said during a news conference. “But to see my officers have to use lethal force against one of my very own? I never thought I’d see that day.”

Grief counselors have been provided for deputies in the department.
