Police said one shot was fired during that struggle, striking Lister in the torso.

Both men were taken to an area hospital after medics arrived. The CCPD said Hasette was treated for minor injuries and released. Lister died from his injuries at around 2 a.m. the following morning.

Hasette was placed on administrative leave following the incident.
