Authorities say a suspect in a domestic incident who was being treated at a Minnesota hospital grabbed a gun from a sheriff's deputy and killed the officer.

Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Superintendent Drew Evans says hospital security officers then subdued the suspect with a stun gun, and he died soon afterward.

The shooting happened early on Sunday morning at St. Cloud Hospital.

The deputy was identified as 60-year-old Steven Sandberg, while the suspect was 50-year-old Danny Hammond.

Police and hospital officials declined to say at a news conference why Hammond was being treated at the hospital.

They said the hospital had asked the sheriff's department to station a guard in Hammond's room because of the seriousness of the domestic incident, which was earlier in the week.
