OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City police say two officers shot and killed a man after he raised a shotgun as they approached him on the city’s south side.

Police say the two officers fatally shot 43-year-old Michael Dansby Thursday evening after Dansby’s fiancé called 911 to say that he was loading his weapon and she needed police. According to a narrative released by Oklahoma City police on Friday, Sgts. Daniel Carli and James Runner responded to the call and found Dansby walking in the street, armed with a shotgun and a pistol.

The officers have been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is being investigated.
