On January 13, 2017, at 2:06 a.m., Sheriff’s Deputies were called to an apartment complex at 12070 SW Fischer Road in the community of King City, concerning a reported disturbance. Upon arrival, Sheriff’s Deputies found that Louis Jarvis Jr., 40, broke down the front door to the apartment and fled the area after being shot at.

Sheriff’s Deputies found the front door damaged from being kicked in. During the investigation, Sheriff’s Deputies learned that as Mr. Jarvis entered the apartment the mother armed herself with a handgun to protect herself.
