HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- A Michigan man is dead after a shooting in Colorado at the home of a sheriff's deputy and a prosecutor.

Authorities say a deputy district attorney for Colorado's 14th Judicial District called 911 late Monday to report a stranger behaving erratically at her front door in Hot Sulphur Springs. A fight started after the person tried to get into the home, and shots were fired.

Coroner's officials said Tuesday that 32-year-old Joshua Lee Stevens of Coral, Mich., died in the shooting. He was believed to have been in town for about a week, looking for work.

The prosecutor and her husband, who is a Grand County sheriff's deputy, had minor injuries.

Authorities say there are no obvious ties to other recent shootings in Colorado.
