Officers arrived on scene and set up a perimeter to safeguard the neighborhood. The owner of the house was known to have a large quantity of weapons inside of his residence. Police say It was not the first time officers had responded to the residence.

Around 8:15pm, Hansrote exited the residence and discharged a firearm several times, at which time he was shot. Hansrote was pronounced dead at the scene.
