An hour-and-a-half later, they had David long, who lives at the address and is wheelchair bound, outside the house when he pulled a  handgun and began firing at the officer. The officer returned fire, killing long, but was struck four times and airlifted to a Memphis hospital where he is undergoing treatment.
