Posted: Updated:

The man accused of being involved in a Thanksgiving standoff, turned officer-involved shooting is due in court Friday morning.

Investigators said the initial call for a domestic dispute came in at 6:30 p.m. for a home in the 10400 block of Oak Side Drive. Once on scene in the North Oaks subdivision, officers helped several family members safely exit the home, but Killough, 47, remained inside.

Killough was witnessed walking around inside the home with what appeared to be a long gun, according to police. After 40 minutes, the suspect came out of the home and after reportedly engaging with officers, investigators said responding units were forced to fire and wound him.

Killough faces several charges, including felony assault on an officer. He is due in court at 11 a.m.
