CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is trying to determine if a man who appeared to be threatening officers with a gun was actually armed when they fatally shot him this week, a spokesperson said Thursday.
Two Claremore police officers and and a Rogers County deputy shot Bobby Joe Johnston, 40, on Wednesday as he ran at them "in a threatening manner" along Interstate 44 in Claremore, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa, OSBI spokesperson Brooke Arbeitman said.
Johnston was taken to a hospital where he died, Arbeitman said.
