A man was shot and killed early Sunday outside a Circle K during a confrontation with deputies responding to a report of an armed robbery, officials say.

A man was shot and killed early this morning during a confrontation with deputies responding to a reported armed robbery at a convenience store on Tucson’s south side, officials said.

The incident started about 2 a.m. when deputies received an emergency call about an armed robbery at a Circle K store in the 9800 block of South Nogales Highway, south of the city near the airport, said Deputy Ryan Inglett, a Pima County Sheriff’s Department spokesman.

A confrontation occurred outside the store in which a man was shot and killed.

Neither deputies nor a store employee was injured, Inglett said.

Details were expected later Sunday, Inglett said.
