A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting Thursday morning in Albert Lea, Minn.
Albert Lea police officers responded to a 911 call about 10 a.m. regarding an individual in an alley on the 300 block of Court Street, according to a written release from the police department.
Few details about the incident were available Thursday afternoon, and officials have not yet confirmed whether the man had a weapon.
According to the police department's news release: "Officers located the individual and at one point during the encounter, officers discharged their weapons, striking the individual."
Officers attempted lifesaving measures, according to the statement, but were unable to revive him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office is expected to release the man's name and the cause of death.
No one else was injured.
Investigators will determine whether squad dash cameras captured the incident.
Freeborn County Sheriff Kurt Freitag said officers weren't wearing body cameras. The Sheriff's Office and police department recently obtained body cameras and expect to begin using them in about two weeks, after officers have been trained, he said.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the shooting.
