PONCA CITY, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says two men have been fatally shot by law officers in separate incidents.

The OSBI says Ponca City officers confronted 31-year-old Ian Shea King as he assaulting a delivery man with a machete, which was previously said to be a tire iron. The OSBI says officers shot the man when he threatened them with the weapon.

In the other shooting, the OSBI says 25-year-old Colton Caloway was pulled over by an Elk City officer Wednesday, then ran into a Burns Flat neighborhood. Investigators say he tried to force his way inside a home, then turned toward the officer with a gun in his hand and the officer shot him. The OSBI initially spelled his name Calloway.

The officers involved haven't been identified.
