CHANDLER -- Officers responding to a domestic dispute call in Chandler early Sunday morning had to use a stun gun to take the suspect into custody after he fired a gun.

Chandler police officers responded to a report of a violent domestic dispute near Elliot and Price roads at approximately 12:10 a.m. Sunday.

The first officer arrived and saw a man approaching two women who were outside the home. When the man saw the officer, he reportedly ran inside the home, refusing orders from the officer to stop.

Detective David Ramer said the officer followed the man, identified as Brandon King, 31, into the home where King brandished a gun.

King ran upstairs and out of view of the officer where he reportedly fired two shots. Ramer said King then confronted the officer in a threatening manner and the officer fired one shot.

King surrendered and complied with the officer's commands until he was downstairs where he again resisted lawful commands.

Ramer said officers used a stun gun to subdue King and he was taken into custody. He faces multiple charges, including unlawful discharge of a firearm and unlawful imprisonment.

No one was shot during the incident.
