BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting in Huntley.

Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder tells The Billings Gazette (https://bit.ly/1KrgNDa ) that two deputies were responding to a burglary Thursday when they spotted an SUV that matched the description of a stolen vehicle.

The deputies began following the vehicle but got stuck in the snow. Linder says the driver of the SUV turned around and accelerated toward the deputies, prompting them to open fire.

Investigators have not released the driver’s name or age.
