KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say two police officers shot a man during a confrontation in a residential neighborhood northwest of Kalispell.

The Flathead Beacon reports (https://bit.ly/1OZPRj6 ) the shooting happened inside a home Tuesday afternoon after Kalispell officers responded to a report of a suicidal woman.

Investigators say that as the officers talked to the woman inside, a man came from a back room holding a rifle. The officers told the man to drop the weapon, but he instead pointed it at them. Both officers shot the man.

Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry says his office was asked to investigate the shooting. The man was taken to the hospital and underwent surgery. His name and condition have not been released.
