(AP) – A 36-year-old man was fatally shot Friday in Lakeville in a confrontation with Dakota County sheriff’s deputies.

The sheriff’s office said the deputies were serving an emergency order for protection that called for the man to be removed from the home when he opened fire. One deputy returned fire, killing the man, the office said in a statement.

The man was wanted on a warrant for assaulting a peace officer, the statement said.
