OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Police have publicly identified a man who was killed by an Oklahoma City police officer during a scuffle as 28-year-old Kyle Anthony Mihecoby.

Police Capt. Bo Mathews said Monday that Officer Bethany Sears fatally shot Mihecoby on Sunday as they fought over her gun. Police earlier said the officer shot Mihecoby after he knocked away the officer’s pepper spray and took her stun gun during a struggle.

Mihecoby was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mathews says Sears was treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries and is on paid leave pending an investigation into the shooting.
