Authorities say the man shot and killed by a JSO officer in Springfield had a lengthy criminal past, including two arrests for murder.
The suspect's been identified as Anthony Dwayne Harris.
Police responded to a domestic battery call at a home along North Pearl Street.
Investigators say a man was injuring his 17-year-old son.
As police decided to arrest Harris, authorities say he threatened officers that he was not going back to jail.
When officers moved in to handcuff him, police say he grabbed officer Kevin Kilcoin in a bear hug and threw him to the ground.
The second officer, officer Scott Williams, jumped in.
Police say all three wrestled on the ground until Harris was in handcuffs.
Officer Williams saw Harris reach around and grab officer Kilcoin's gun, unsnap it from the holster and begin to remove it.
Officer Williams stood up, pulled his firearm and fired seven times at Harris.
All seven shots hit Harris, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The two officers are on administrative leave, which is standard procedure after police shootings.
Officer Williams is out of the hospital. He had an injury to his thigh, but police aren't sure yet what caused it.
Harris had an extensive criminal history. He's had arrests for murder, once as a 15 year old, and a second arrest as an adult. He's also been arrested for armed robbery, kidnapping, burglary, possession and sale of cocaine and other drug charges and gambling.
