MADISON, Ala. -  Five Madison police officers are on administrative leave after a deadly officer-involved shooting outside the Planet Fitness on Highway 72 in Madison, according to authorities.

The Madison Police Department tells WHNT News 19 that not all five officers discharged their weapons but are on leave due to department policy.

A spokesperson said this provides the officers the opportunity to mentally process what took place and be available for the investigation.

A spokesperson for the Madison Police Department says officers were called to a "check a subject" call outside the Planet Fitness at 5 p.m.

Authorities say the officers arrived and made contact with the person who fit the caller's description. During the course of the check, an altercation took place, according to Madison Police.

Madison Police say the man did not comply with police orders, however, the department did not specify what the orders were. At least one officer fired shots and the man died from his injuries, according to authorities.

It's not clear how many shots were fired by officers or if the man had a weapon. Investigators say they won't release any more information until the man's family is notified.

Authorities say the Madison County Sheriff's Office will take over the investigation.
