SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating a fatal shooting involving a Pottawatomie County sheriff’s deputy.

The OSBI says the shooting occurred Saturday night after deputies received a report about a man attacking family members inside a residence west of Shawnee. A deputy who responded encountered a man matching a description of the suspect walking along a road carrying a baseball bat.

The OSBI says the man swung the bat at the deputy, and the deputy fired his weapon.
