A man died amid gunfire as police responded to a domestic disturbance call in far southwestern Minnesota early Sunday, authorities said.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the use-of-force incident in Marshall.

According to a news release from Marshall police, the man was stabbing a woman when officers arrived at the 500 block of Brussels Court around 2:40 a.m.

After an officer made contact with the man, police used a stun gun to try to stop the suspect, "and at one point during contact with the male, shots were fired." The man died on the scene despite attempts to save him, the release said.

The police statement did not make clear who fired the fatal shot. The identities of the man and woman were not available.

The woman was in critical condition after being airlifted to a Sioux Falls, S.D., hospital.

The attack on the woman is not believed to be random, police said.

The BCA is investigating, as it often does in such cases, at the request of the Marshall Police Department.
