RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Rapid City police say an officer responding to a domestic assault call fatally shot a man who lunged at him with an apparent metal bar.

Authorities say officers Tuesday night responded to a report of a domestic assault at a residence with a man and woman inside, and forced their way in after the man refused to open the door.

Police say 46-year-old Patrick Lundstrom lunged at Officer Matt Macrander with what appeared to be a metal bar raised over his head, and Macrander shot him. Lundstrom was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was hurt.

The state Division of Criminal Investigation will look into the shooting. Macrander is on leave pending the probe. Both are standard procedure.

Macrander has been a Rapid City officer since February 2013.
