JONESBORO, Ga. -

A Clayton County police officer was injured and another man was killed during an exchange of gunfire Friday evening.

Officials said the incident began as a "rolling domestic dispute" when a man in car was following a woman in a minivan. The man then rammed the back of her vehicle and that caused the woman's minivan to hit a police cruiser.

The man and woman got out of their vehicles and began yelling at each other. The woman told officers she was being chased by her estranged husband.

Officers who tried to intervened exchanged shots with the man. The man was fatally shot. One of the officers was taken to the hospital and was listed in serious but stable condition.
