Police have identified the victim as 48 year old John Chris Anderson.
The deputy involved is 17 year veteran, Scott Bloom.
You're looking at exclusive video taped by a neighbor immediately after the shooting.
Officers were first called out to Anderson's home on a domestic disturbance call.
When they got there, they reported that Anderson was intoxicated, sitting in his car...with a gun to his head.
They say that when Anderson pointed his gun at the deputies, Bloom -- out of safety -- fired his gun...the bullet hitting Anderson in the front of his neck. A wound that officials say would not have killed him.
Then, Anderson placed his gun to his head and committed suicide.
Anderson was pronounced dead on the scene.
The involved sheriff's deputies are on administrative leave pending the investigation.
