CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper fatally shot a man in Carson City during an encounter at an apartment complex.

NHP Trooper Duncan Dauber says the authorities responded at about 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday to reports of a man with a shotgun in the manager’s office at the Senator Apartments.

Dauber says the man didn’t obey verbal commands from a Carson City sheriff’s deputy and a trooper, and the trooper fatally shot the man.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting. Names of the people involved have not yet been released.
