Agency spokesman Captain Kevin James says deputies were called to the scene in the 4300 block of the East Interstate 80 Service Road (about three miles east of the TA Travel Center near Burns) at 3:03 p.m. and arrived to find the man suffering from a gunshot wound.

James says the shooting suspect was detained, but as of 11 a.m. Tuesday no arrest had been made.

"The subject of the investigation will be identified once it is deemed that doing so will not compromise an ongoing investigation," he said.

James says further information will be released as the investigation progresses.

This is the second fatal shooting in the county in the past two months.
