CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities shot and killed a man they say fired a rifle at them during a standoff in southeastern Wyoming.

Laramie County sheriff’s deputies recognized a truck Wednesday afternoon that was being driven by a man who had an Albany County arrest warrant for sexual assault and violating his probation.

After an hour-long standoff, the man exited his vehicle and fired toward the officers. A deputy and three Cheyenne police officers returned fire, hitting the suspect, who died at a nearby hospital. No law enforcement officers were injured.

Investigators have not released any other information.
