FOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) – Authorities say a man has died after he was shot by Fountain police during a confrontation with officers.
The El Paso County District Attorney’s Office says 25-year-old Jonathan Clark died late Monday at Memorial Hospital in nearby Colorado Springs.

None of the officers were hurt.
