Man dies in SWAT standoff

Warren Gary Cook, 56, of South Lebanon was pronounced dead at his home 4861 Lebanon Road at 7:25 p.m. Monday after he was shot by three SWAT officers called to the home after he came to the door with a shotgun, according to reports.

The SWAT team was called to home about 5 p.m. Monday after Cook "threatened uniformed deputies and then barricaded himself with at least one firearm. Deputies were at the residence attempting to serve a Domestic Violence Protection Order," according to a press release.

Cook was required to leave the residence after relatives petitioned the court, according to the press release.

Cook was shot when he showed the shotgun at the window of the home. Three unidentified officers were involved in the shooting, according to Doyle Burke, chief investigator for the coroner's office.

The officers have been placed on paid administrative leave, standard procedure after an officer-involved shooting, according to a press release.
