RCMP have shot and killed a man in southern Manitoba.

Police say officers were patrolling a highway near the francophone community of La Broquerie, when they saw a stopped vehicle and a man standing by the driver-side door. 

They say the man was reaching in the vehicle and assaulting a woman while holding an edged weapon. 

RCMP say officers ordered the man to step away and drop the weapon, but he began to approach the officers and one fired a gun. 

The 51-year-old man from the Ste. Anne area was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba has been notified.
