“Deputies made contact with that individual, a struggle ensued at which time the suspect produced a hand gun and deputy-involved shooting occurred,” Lt. Dave Coleman said.

The suspect, who was in his 20s, died at the scene and a handgun was recovered.

No deputies were injured.

The shooting was under investigation.
