HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A Phillips County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a man during a confrontation along U.S. Highway 191 southwest of Malta.

The Department of Justice says Deputy Alan Guderjahn was stabbed several times and is recovering at a Great Falls hospital.

The DOJ says Guderjahn responded to a call about a suspicious man walking along the highway early Wednesday. When Guderjahn confronted the man, the suspect attacked and stabbed him. Guderjahn shot and killed the suspect.

The man’s name, age and hometown have not been released.

Keri Garman, a spokeswoman for Benefis Health System, tells The Great Falls Tribune that Guderjahn was listed in good condition Wednesday afternoon.

The state’s Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into the confrontation.
