HOOKER, Okla. (AP) — Law enforcement officers shot and killed a man after a police chase in the Panhandle town of Hooker, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Monday.

In a news release, the agency said Scott Osborn, 47, was killed Sunday night. Officers from several agencies were at the scene, and the OSBI did not report which officers fired shots at Osborn or why police initiated a traffic stop.
