SUN CITY, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is investigating after a man died when he was hit by a bean bag round fired by officers during a confrontation in south-central Kansas.

The shooting Friday evening in Barber County resulted in the death of 42-year-old Steven Myers of Sun City.

The KBI says Barber County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a man threatening people with a gun outside a bar in Sun City. When officers arrived, the man had left but they later found him in a shed. The KBI says when the man came out of the shed, he didn’t follow several orders given by deputies. One deputy shot him with a bean bag. Myers was pronounced dead at the scene.

No officers were injured.

No further information was released.
