He fled into a duplex after police were called.

It is not the victim's home, but he does also know the resident of the duplex.

When he entered the duplex, those who were inside came out. As this happened, a dog that had been inside became aggressive toward the victim and nearby officers. Police shot and killed the dog.

A couple of neighboring duplexes were evacuated as a safety precaution. A reverse 911 call was made to advise citizens of the ongoing situation.
