Authorities say Lee Edward Kilby was shot by a deputy on Friday.
According to a release, deputies were attempting to execute a search warrant for the home of Kilby on Sparta Road in North Wilkesboro.
Kilby, who was outside at the time, tried to run away from deputies and a chase began. Deputies identified themselves and ordered Kilby to stop, but say Kilby ran into a detached garage behind the home.
Deputies pursued Kilby in the garage and he was ordered to show his hands. After several commands, Kilby raised a handgun and pointed it at a deputy. He was then shot by authorities.
