TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — The FBI is investigating after a Puyallup tribal police officer fatally shot a 45-year-old man outside the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington.

The Puyallup Tribe said in a statement that the tribal officer has been put on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
FBI agents were at the scene investigating, according to FBI spokeswoman Ayn S. Dietrich-Williams.
