1 man dead, 2 police officers injured in Arlington shooting

An Arlington man was shot and killed by a police officer who responded to a domestic dispute.

A neighbor who heard yelling called 911 Tuesday morning to report an incident involving a man and an elderly woman at the Gates of Ballston apartment complex. 

The man, 54-year-old Alfredo Rials-Torres, was shot in the chest and died. 

One police officer suffered severe lacerations across his face, which required surgery. A second officer was wounded by a Taser. The woman suffered minor injuries. 

Someone who knew the man who was killed told FOX 5 that he battled depression.

Investigators say they have not been able to interview the officers about what led up to the shooting. Both officers surrendered their service weapons in accordance with department policy.
