LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- We now know the identity of the man killed by Jeffersontown police Tuesday afternoon, as well as the Jeffersontown Police officers who were involved in the shooting. 

We've also learned that the gun the suspect was wielding a BB gun.

According to Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Eddie Robinson, Roger D. Hall Jr. died in the Emergency Room at University of Louisville Hospital at 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 20. 

Hall had been involved in a shooting incident with Jeffersontown Police at approximately 12:50 p.m. in the rear of the Holiday Inn at 1325 Hurstbourne Lane. 

Robinson says Hall was a resident of Clarksville, Indiana, but had been staying at an unknown location in the Louisville area. 

Hall was a suspect in an armed robbery in a Jimmy Johns' parking lot on Hurstbourne Parkway.

Jeffersontown Police Chief Rick Sanders said Hall pulled a gun from his waistband before officers opened fire. That gun was later determined to be a BB gun, according to police.

Sanders said officers found a syringe loaded with heroin on Hall.

Wednesday afternoon, Jeffersontown Police identified the officers involved as Ofc. Torray Walker and Ofc. Dwight Tyler. Walker has 17 years of service in law enforcement. Tyler has 19. They are both on administrative leave while the shooting is being investigated.

Jeffersontown Police will conduct the investigation but Sanders says there is no conflict of interest.

"This department is perfectly capable of handling this investigation," Sanders said. "We have nothing to hide. Everything that we discover will be turned over."
