An investigation is ongoing into a deputy-involved shooting after a Pottawatomie County sheriff's deputy shot and killed a bat-wielding suspect near McLoud Saturday night.

Jessica Brown, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, has identified the decedent as Jonathan William LeRoy, 39.

She said LeRoy was shot once in the stomach area; full autopsy results are awaited from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

The Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office requested the OSBI's help to investigate the deadly shooting Saturday night.

“We're still gathering evidence,” Brown said about the investigation Monday, adding that the OSBI has the deputy's body camera video, which is part of the probe.

Brown said the the name of the deputy involved in the shooting incident is not being released.

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 allegedly attacking family members inside that home.

About a quarter mile from the home, a deputy saw a man walking down the road who matched the description of the suspect. That man, now identified as LeRoy, was carrying a baseball bat.

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

LeRoy was transported to St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital, where he died.

It's unclear yet whether deputies had any prior calls at the same address, however LeRoy does have a criminal record from an Oklahoma County conviction in 2001 that required him to register as a sex offender, the state's registry shows.

Brown, who said she anticipates the investigation will take much of this week, said the OSBI is focusing its investigation on what exactly happened when the suspect and deputy confronted each other.

Agents will provide District Attorney Richard Smothermon a detailed report of the incident so he can determine whether or not the shooting was justified.
