OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma City police say an officer fatally shot a man wielding a machete after he ignored orders to drop the weapon.
Officers responded Sunday night to a report of a man holding the weapon in his front yard. Police say the man had been threatening neighbors with it.
Authorities say an officer told the man to drop his weapon and shot him after he refused to do so. The man, whose name wasn’t released, died at the scene.
Police Capt. Paco Balderrama says more information will be released Monday.
