A Dupo police officer responded to a domestic disturbance at the home. When the officer arrived, a 41-year-old man was standing at the front door.
The officer says he had a confrontation with the man and shot him after feeling threatened.
The 41-year-old man was transported to a St. Louis area hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest.
