The 911 calls originated from the alleged domestic violence dispute that took place before the shooting.

Louisville Metro Police have also released the name of the officer who shot and killed the man. That officer's name is Marc Christiansen, a five-year veteran of the force.

It happened last Tuesday, just after midnight, after Christiansen answered a call about a domestic dispute in the parking lot of City View Apartments at Ninth Street and Broadway, near Esquire Alley.

In the 911 call that initiated the run, the woman can be heard telling dispatchers that she had a busted lip that was bleeding. You could also hear a baby's voice coming across in the call.

The woman told dispatchers she had given birth to children with John Jolley, Jr., and she was going to walk outside to get the license plate number on Jolley's car.

Jolley is the man who was shot moments later by police in the parking lot of City View Apartments.

LMPD officials say when Officer Marc Christiansen arrived, he saw Jolley and his girlfriend walking towards Jolley's car. She was holding a small child.

Christiansen shot and killed Jolley after confronting him. Christansen's weapon fired eight times. Police say they collected a semi-automatic pistol from the scene believed to belong to Jolley.

Police say Jolley did not fire at the officer.    

During a news conference Friday afternoon, Lt. Kevin DeSpain with the city's Public Integrity Unit said Christiansen perceived that Jolley was a threat to him or the woman and opened fire. Jolley was struck in the head and torso.

He died at the scene of multiple gunshot wounds, according to deputy coroner Jo-Ann Farmer.
