One man is dead near the Webbers Falls lock and dam after police interacted with two men fishing, according to law enforcement personnel.

Police were dispatched to the dam, where two men were fishing, the source, who asked for anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media, said. During an unknown interaction, one of the fishermen was shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

More details coming.

This is a developing story. Some details may change.

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources say two officers approached the men to serve a warrant. One man allegedly pulled a gun and fired at officers, who returned fire, the source said.

The investigation is ongoing.

UPDATE: Benjamin Ray Ridley, 30, is the decedent.
