A deputy-involved shooting is under investigation in Pottawatomie County after a sheriff's deputy shot and killed a bat-wielding suspect Saturday night west of Shawnee.

The Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office requested the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation's help to investigate a deadly shooting by one of its deputies.

The OSBI says it was just before 7 p.m. when a 911 call was made from 13909 Fishmarket Road about a man who was attacking family members inside the home.

About a quarter mile from the home, a deputy saw a man matching the description of the suspect walking down the road. The man was carrying a baseball bat and the deputy made contact with the man.

“During that contact, the man reportedly began swinging the bat,” the OSBI released. “The deputy fired his weapon.”

The man was transported to St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital, where he died. The OSBI said the man's name will be released at a later time. Several OSBI agents were gathering information and documenting the scene late Saturday night.

Agents will provide District Attorney Richard Smothermon a detailed report of the incident and he will determine whether the shooting was justified.
