GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A deputy U.S. marshal shot and killed a man who brandished a handgun while officers tried to arrest him in Great Falls on a probation violation.

Montana Department of Justice spokesman John Barnes said Tuesday the U.S. Marshals Service Violent Offender Task Force had a no-bond warrant to serve on a 42-year-old man. He was located Monday afternoon in a sport utility vehicle in an alley.

Officials say the man was shot when he got out of the vehicle with a handgun. His name has not been released.

The DOJ’s Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting.
