OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says a man who was shot during a confrontation with deputies in west Omaha has died.

The Sheriff’s Office said in news release Monday that 32-year-old Taylor Culbertson died around 10:15 a.m. Sunday. He’d been hospitalized since being shot in a parking lot of convenience store on June 23.

Officials say Deputy Chad Miller ordered Culbertson out of his vehicle that morning after Miller was told by a store clerk that Culbertson seemed to be intoxicated. Officials say Culbertson pulled a gun, which went off as he and Miller struggled over it. Deputy Wade Grim, who had arrived to back up Miller, then shot Culbertson. Neither deputy was injured.

An autopsy on Culbertson’s body has been ordered.
