GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a western Michigan man has died after he pointed his gun at officers and one fired back in response.

Kent County sheriff’s deputies say were called early Sunday to a home in Gaines Township near Grand Rapids for a domestic disturbance. A man met them at the door with a gun, leading to the shooting.

Officials say several deputies were hurt during the fight but are expected to be OK.

Since it was an officer-involved shooting, the nearby Wyoming Police Department is handling the investigation.
