A 31-year-old Detroit man wanted on a criminal sexual conduct warrant has been shot to death after exchanging gunfire with police.

Michigan State Police say in a release that the U.S. Marshal Service Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team tracked the man Thursday afternoon to an apartment complex north of the city in Warren.

Shots were fired about 1 p.m. after officers identified themselves and tried to arrest the man.

Seven officers are assigned to the Fugitive Apprehension Team. State police say a U.S. marshal, Detroit police officer and state Corrections officer fired shots.

The man later died at a hospital. No officers were hurt.

State police are investigating the shooting.
