3:31 p.m.: Selwyn Hall, a man who was fatally shot by police, said Selwyn Hall did not grab a police officer's Taser. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Director Ron Lendvay said Hall did have custody of the Taser during the struggle with officers.
Lendvay said every witness sees things from a different point of view and all testimony has to be taken before conclusions are drawn.
3:08 p.m.: Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Director Ron Lendvay said a man who was fatally shot by police had violated an active domestic violence injunction that was issued on April 16, 2015.
Lendvay said in the incident that led to the filing of the 2015 injunction, Selwyn Hall punched the victim in the face, dragged her through the apartment and held her face in the toilet with his hands around her neck.
On Tuesday night, police observed dirt and scratches on the victim -- the same victim from the 2015 injunction. Lendvay said the victim had called police multiple times Tuesday night. Hall is a convicted felon, Lendvay said.
2:55 p.m. JSO said Officer Ryan McGee, who shot Selwyn Hall, is a four-year veteran. This was his first officer involved shooting. JSO said he fired eight times at Hall. It will not be known how many times Hall was hit until an autopsy is complete.
McGee was placed on administrative leave. The other officer who responded, though they did not fire any shots, was also placed on administrative leave.

The shooting happened on East 19th Street hours after police were called to the area for a domestic dispute.

Officers were first called around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday after reports of a domestic battery. Someone told police a man had dragged a woman around by her hair.
Officers said the suspect, identified by family as 57-year-old Selwyn Hall, fled.

Investigators determined said Hall violated a domestic violence injunction for protection.
"The restraining order was against my husband, but we reconciled and we're trying to get our marriage together," Hall's wife Joann told Action News Jax.
JSO said Selwyn Hall returned to the home about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, and officers found him in a car in the driveway.
According to investigators, he became combative after officers told him that he was under arrest for domestic battery.

JSO said he struggled with officers as they tried to take him into custody.

The officers used a Taser on him to try to get him to comply. The Taser was not effective. At some point, he got hold of one of the officers' Tasers, JSO said.
Officers said that's when one of them pulled out their gun and fired at him. He was fatally wounded and died at the scene.
Joann Hall said she witnessed the shooting.
"They beat him like a dog," she said. "I had to stand there and watch that. I watched them murder and beat him, and they shot him."
Joann Hall told Action News Jax that her husband was shot five times in the chest from close range.
"Whether he resisted or not, he didn't deserve to die," she said. "He didn't deserve five bullets in his chest."
Fire rescue was unable to revive him at the scene.
"No one deserves to die like that, in front of their wife," Selwyn Hall's niece Tiarra Campbell said. "That's just crazy, and it's wrong."
JSO said no officers were hurt. The names of the officers have not yet been released.
