Abita Springs man dies after deputy-involved shooting

Abita Springs, La.- A St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's deputy shot an Abita Springs man Friday night while responding to a domestic violence call at his residence. 

The man has been identified as 32-year-old Jason Glover. 

Around 11:00 p.m., the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office received a 911 call from Glover's girlfriend reporting that he had threatened to kill her and was armed with a handgun. 

When deputies arrived, Glover was sitting in his vehicle outside the residence. 

As Glover exited the vehicle, deputies determined that he was armed with a handgun and repeated calls for him to drop the weapon when Glover raised the gun, pointing it directly at one of the deputies.  

The deputy then fired at Glover, striking him twice. 

Police say Glover was transported to the hospital, where he died from his injuries Saturday morning. 

The sheriff's office says both criminal and internal investigations will be conducted and the deputy will be given the opportunity to receive counseling and receive time off, if needed.

It is believed Glover served in war, but is unclear where he was stationed at this time.

"This is truly a tragic situation," said Sheriff 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 their very difficult time."
