RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Police say a man was fatally shot during an altercation with two private bail bondsmen in Southern California.

Officer Ryan Railsback says police and sheriff's deputies responded Sunday evening to reports of a wounded man along a river in the city of Riverside.

Railsback says the bail bondsmen were following a wanted man and eventually got into a physical altercation with him that ended with shots fired. After the shooting, the bail bondsmen requested law enforcement assistance.

The incident remains under investigation.
