LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming state law enforcement agency has submitted a preliminary report on the fatal shooting of a Laramie man by a sheriff's deputy.

Albany County Attorney Peggy Trent says she is still seeking more material from the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation after receiving the DCI report Friday.

Trent tells the Laramie Boomerang she's also waiting on autopsy results and a toxicology report before determining whether deadly force was justified.

Albany County sheriff's deputy Derek Colling shot Robbie Ramirez after a traffic stop in Laramie on Nov. 4. Colling has been placed on administrative leave.

Colling fatally shot a teenager in 2009, when he was a police officer in Las Vegas. He was fired from the Las Vegas police department after beating a man who was filming police.
