A Fairfax County police helicopter located the man — who police have identified as Kurtis Kay Frevert — who had been in a wooded area, as he walked back to the home. Officers encountered him near the front door.
During the incident, five officers discharged their guns, although it’s not clear how many times the husband was shot. And it’s not known if he also fired his weapon.
The man died at a hospital. No officers were injured. All the officers involved will be placed on routine paid leave during the investigation.
