    A man was shot and killed early Monday morning in an armed confrontation with a state trooper in Wales, Maine, according to state police.

    Authorities said troopers were called to a mobile home on Route 132 Sunday night after a domestic violence incident where a shot had been fired at a woman. Police said the victim was not hurt.
