Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting near Shawnee at Memorial and Fishmarket.

OSBI said a Pottawatomie County Sheriff's deputy responded to a call about a man, identified as 39-year-old Jonathan LeRoy, attacking his family at their home. As the deputy was driving to the scene, he spotted a man matching the LeRoy's description walking down the road, carrying a baseball bat. The deputy told OSBI that when he made contact with LeRoy, LeRoy began to swing the baseball bat at the deputy.

The deputy then shot LeRoy. He was taken to the hospital and died there.
