POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Okla. – The Oklahoma man who was killed in a deputy-involved shooting has been identified.
Just before 7 p.m. Saturday, someone called 911 about a man who was attacking family members inside a Pottawatomie County home.
About a quarter mile from the home, a deputy saw a man walking down the road matching the description of the suspect.
State authorities say the man was carrying a baseball bat.
Officials say the deputy made contact with the man, identified as 39-year-old Jonathan William LeRoy.
During that contact, the man reportedly began swinging the bat.
The deputy then fired his weapon.
The man was transported to a Shawnee hospital where he died.
OSBI has been called in to investigate.
