    One man is dead after an officer-involved shooting early Sunday morning in Dallas.

    Dallas police said officers went to the 3300 block of Southern Oaks Boulevard at 12:26 a.m. Sunday on a major disturbance call.

    Police said a man they had dealt with in the past was knocking on a woman's door threatening her. The suspect, Clinton Allen, left the apartment before officers got there, so officers searched the apartment complex for him..

    Police said Officer Clark Staller, alone at the time, found Allen and a struggle ensued. Officer Staller called for assistance but Dallas police said, fearing for his life, he fired his weapon hitting Allen.

    The suspect, Clinton Allen, was taken to Baylor Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

    As with any officer-involved shooting, the incident is under routine administrative investigation. Dallas police said Officer Staller is a 4-year veteran of the department.

    Dallas police also said Allen was convicted of two separate assault family violence offenses in Dallas. He was recently arrested on February 23, 2013 in Irving for marijuana possession.
