Officials ID man killed by Pottawatomie County deputy
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has identified the man killed by a Pottawatomie deputy Saturday night as 39-year-old Jonathan William Leroy of McLoud.
Officials said a 911 call came in from a house on Fishmarket Road just before 7 pm, the caller stating a man was attacking family members inside.
Deputies arrived and found Leroy walking down the road from the house carrying a baseball bat.
When they tried to talk to him, deputies said, Leroy started swinging, so a deputy fired his weapon.
Leroy was taken to a hospital in Shawnee where he died.
Records show Leroy was a lifetime registered sex offender after being convicted of lewd or indecent proposals / acts to a child in 2001.
The shooting remains under investigation by the OSBI.
The district attorney will determine whether the shooting was justified.
