MIAMI (AP) - Authorities say a man was fatally shot during an altercation with Miami-Dade police officers.

Police say detectives went to a southwest Miami-Dade apartment complex Tuesday afternoon to follow up on an investigation of a case from Miami International Airport. During a confrontation, at least two detectives fired their weapons. The suspect, who wasn't immediately named, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/V51VxK ) reports that the shooting remains under investigation.

Police Benevolent Association President John Rivera says the detectives had good reason to fear for their lives, and the investigation will show that.
