    The man shot and killed by a San Diego County Sheriff's deputy in Alpine has been identified. 

    Simon D. Hubble, 33, of Alpine died Wednesday after an incident involving Deputy Aaron Miller.

    Miller, a six-year veteran of the department, was called to Emmanuel Way to help search for what had been reported as a mentally ill, violent man.

    The suspect left the area but officials say Miller met up with him on the road sometime later.

    Lt. John Maryon said it's not clear what happened, but officials say Miller deployed his Taser and then shot at Hubble, striking him.

    Deputies and paramedics tried to perform CPR, but Hubble died a short time later, officials said.

    A screwdriver was found by his body, according to Maryon.

    The incident is under investigation.
