ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said a domestic argument turned deadly when a man opened fire on family members inside a home.

Police were called to a home on Heritage Lakes Court in Mableton just before noon on Saturday and found a man making threats to people inside.

The man who authorities identified as 41-year-old Cesar Anthony Pena allegedly fired several shots inside the home, so officers returned fire, killing him.

Cobb County Police told CBS46 News at one point Pena stepped outside on the front porch with a shotgun.

No one inside the house or any officers were injured in this incident.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is now investigating as per protocol.
