The incident happened shortly before 1 a.m. at a house on Donna Street SW in Mableton.
Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce said investigators responded to the house to look into an ongoing domestic incident.
While police were talking to a woman in the front yard, 53-year-old Clarence Dorris drove up, got out of the car and pointed a weapon at officers, according to Pierce. Police fired back, hitting the man.
Dorris was taken to Atlanta Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
