A man died after being shot by police in southern Minnesota.
Officers from the Austin Police Department and deputies from the Mower County Sheriff's Office responded to a domestic disturbance Wednesday afternoon, and during the incident one of the officers fired their gun, a news release says.
A man was injured and taken to the hospital, where he later died.
An officer suffered non-life threatening injuries during the encounter, and has since been released from the hospital.
Neither the man nor the officers involved have been identified, and no other details regarding what led to the shooting have been released.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating, and will release more information after its first round of interviews.
This is believed to be the first fatal officer-involved shooting in Minnesota in 2017, Jill Oliveira of the BCA, told GoMN. But it is the second officer-involved shooting involving the Austin Police Department in the past year. In April 2016, an Austin officer shot and injured a suspect who backed his vehicle into a squad car during a high-speed chase.
The Washington Post's fatal force database shows 963 people nationally were shot and killed by police in 2016, including 14 in Minnesota.
