Oklahoma authorities fatally shoot man threatening officers
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 for OSBI says three officers shot 40-year-old Bobby Joe Johnston on Wednesday as he ran toward them “in a threatening manner” in Claremore.
Video from KOTV shows Johnston running at armed officers, holding his hands in front of him as if pointing a handgun.
The OSBI will submit a report to the prosecuting attorney, who will decide whether the shooting was justified.
