Man shot dead in confrontation with deputies in Victorville

When arriving deputies confronted the man in the backyard, the man allegedly immediately pulled out a gun. Fearing for their safety, the deputies opened fire on the suspect and killed him.

The man, whose identity was not immediately released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

No deputies or people inside the home were injured during the incident.
