Oklahoma City Police are investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting outside a concert Thursday night near S.W. 2nd Street and Klein.

Off-duty officers were working security at Chicago-based rapper Chief Keef's concert at the Oklahoma City Farmer's Market near downtown. They were patrolling the parking lot when they saw a man who was either passed out or sleeping in a vehicle in the parking lot.

The officers approached the man, later identified as 24-year-old Brian Simms Jr. of Olathe, Kansas, and noticed he had a weapon. They then shouted commands at Simms, but say he refused to obey. That's when one of the officers fired his gun, hitting and killing Simms.

The names of the officers involved have not been released. 

According to police, only one of two officers fired at Simms. That officer was placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal and administrative investigations.

This is the 6th officer-involved shooting of 2013 in Oklahoma City.
