RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Chesterfield County police say an off-duty Richmond police officer has fatally shot a man during a confrontation at a manual car wash.

Police say the officer was waiting for employees to clean his car when another man slipped into his car Saturday and drove it through the stall.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1ROLmp4) reports a witness saw the officer pull out a weapon and repeatedly tell the man to get out, but the man made a sudden move and the officer fired a shot. Chesterfield police Capt. Brad Badgerow says the witness' description was accurate.

The newspaper says the man was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The name of the officer and the man in the car weren't immediately released.
