UPDATE June 30, 2016 at 6:30 P.M.:

Friends have confirmed to KNOE Tyrone Reado is the man who pulled a gun on two deputies Wednesday night.

Police said they responded to an domestic disturbance Wednesday night; which led them to Tyrone Reado's home on Luther Drive.

They said Reado pulled a gun; then they shot and killed him.

Reado's friend Rebecca Grinffin said she's known Reado for more than 15 years, because he dated her sister.

She said he was at her home on Sullivan Road last night drunk; before the shooting.

She said at some point he ended up pulling out a gun; they kicked him out and she called police.

Grinffin said she found out the news of Reado's death from a cousin, and felt bad that she called police. But realized he pulled a gun on two deputies.

She didn't know that a victim had called police about a domestic disturbance; until the next morning.

"He got the police called on him twice last night. And my sister has been dead almost two years, and we still treat him like family no different, so it's a hurting feeling about the whole situation", Friend Rebecca Grinffin said.

We went to the courthouse and Reado has had a few run ends with the law with several speeding tickets.

Louisiana State Police will continue to investigate.
