RISING SUN, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a woman fatally shot a man who was fighting with an Indiana Conservation Officer along an Indiana roadway.

Indiana State Police say the officer responded to a report of a suspicious person near the community of Rising Sun on Monday and made contact with 32-year-old Justin K. Holland of Moores Hill. Police say Holland was in a vehicle along the roadway.

Police say Holland resisted the officer and a physical altercation ensued. State police say a woman who was at a nearby home tried to help the officer and shot Holland in the torso. Police say Holland was taken to a hospital and died. An autopsy is planned Tuesday.

Police say the conservation officer was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. State police are investigating.
