ALBANY, Texas -

Stacy Guy Garren, 49, was fatally wounded Saturday in an officer-involved shooting at an Albany home. 

According to the Shackelford County Sheriff's Office, an Albany police officer and Shackelford County officers responded to a disturbance call at 456 Chism Street at 8:30 p.m. Saturday. 

When they arrived, they made contact with Garren in the backyard of the residence. When officers tried to arrest him, Garren allegedly broke free from the officers, retrieved a .22 caliber handgun and pointed it at them. 

Officers opened fire with four shots. Garren was pronounced dead at Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene after midnight Sunday morning. 

The Texas Rangers and sheriff's office are investigating the incident.
