More details surface in shooting involving deputy

- A man shot by a deputy in Florida following a dispute over a cab fare has died.  Robert Teter, 39, died Monday night after being taken to a hospital with gunshot wounds.

Volusia County sheriff's spokesman Andrew Gant says the incident started after the taxi driver and Teter had a dispute over the cab fare. He says the driver eventually called law enforcement for help.

Sheriff Ben Johnson says when deputies arrived, Teter pulled a gun on the deputies. According to Johnson, Teter was told to put the gun down but he refused. He was then shot three times.  He was airlifted to a hospital where he died.

Johnson says the deputy has been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard practice in a deputy-involved shooting.
