Friday - 4/12/2013, 2:48pm  ET

CULPEPER, Va. (AP) -- More details are emerging on the use of deadly force by two deputies with the Culpeper County Sheriff's Office.

State police say the deputies shot 59-year-old Harold Lee Daniels on Thursday night after the Rapidan man pointed a gun at the deputies. The deputies were attempting to arrest Daniels after his vehicle was clocked going more than 100 mph and he fled in his vehicle after a deputy conducting the speed checks attempted to stop him.

State police say that deputy and a second deputy later traced the vehicle and Daniels to a residence in Rapidan. Investigators said Daniels pointed a gun at the deputies as they attempted to apprehend him. He died at the scene.

Neither deputy was injured in the deadly encounter.

A state police investigation continues.
