An Arkansas state trooper fatally shot a man during a struggle for the trooper's gun Wednesday, Arkansas State Police said.

In a statement, the agency said the man was riding a motorcycle about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday when he failed to comply with the trooper's order to stop on U.S. 70 near Lake Hamilton, just west of Hot Springs.

After a short chase down a dead-end street, the man hopped off the bike and ran away as the trooper pursued him. After the trooper fired a stun gun at the man and approached him, the struggle ensued and the man was shot dead, according to the State Police statement.

The identities of the suspect and the trooper haven't been released.
