BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Authorities have identified a man killed by Billings police after he shot at officers who were attempting to arrest him at a gas station.

Billings police spokesman Lt. Kevin Iffland says the man killed Thursday is 29-year-old Michael Brandon of Billings.

Brandon was wanted on a felony warrant for parole violation.

Officers say they spotted Brandon and tried to arrest him at the gas station at about 3:30 a.m. But police say he ran away and fired several shots from a semi-automatic handgun.

Police say the suspect was later found at the Dude Rancher Inn, where he was killed during a shootout with several officers.

No other injuries were reported.

An autopsy on Brandon is pending.
