LANDER, Wyo. — A man has been fatally shot by police on the Wind River Reservation.

Few details were released about the shooting Tuesday night near Ethete. The FBI is investigating.

FBI spokesman Dave Joly says the investigation is in the early stages and additional information will be released later.

According to the Fremont County Sheriff's Office, it received a call shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday that a man armed with a handgun had shot out the window of a vehicle.

A responding deputy stopped a vehicle missing a window. The release says one of the three occupants was uncooperative and the shooting occurred after reservation police arrived to help.

No information about the man shot to death was released.
