TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Officials say a man was shot and killed during an altercation with a sheriff’s deputy at an upscale resort in Tucson.

According to a release from the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, deputies were called late Friday night to The Lodge at Ventana Canyon, where there were reports of a disturbance.

When the deputy who responded approached a man for questioning, sheriff’s officials say the man began attacking the officer. The man was shot, and transported to Banner University Medical Center in Tucson, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities have not identified the man who was killed or the sheriff’s deputy who responded to the scene.

The Lodge at Ventana Canyon is situated at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains near the northeast edge of Tucson.
