VADNAIS HEIGHTS, MN (AP) - Authorities say the man fatally shot by a Ramsey County sheriff's deputy in Vadnais Heights had struggled with officers and disarmed one of them.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says four deputies entered a suspicious RV after talking with the driver last Sunday night. Two deputies used their stun guns after a struggle started with the driver, identified as 47-year-old Darren Jahnke.

The BCA says the deputies were not wearing body cameras. Video from the deputies' squad cars is being analyzed.
