Name released of Oklahoma trooper who shot, killed man

MIAMI, Okla. (AP) _ The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has released the name of the trooper who shot and killed a Miami man after the man allegedly threatened the trooper with a handgun.

The OHP on Tuesday said Trooper Aaron Gibe shot 63-year-old Gary Timmie Collins last Friday after Collins led troopers on a six-block chase after refusing to pull over while stopped at a traffic checkpoint in Miami.

Lt. John Vincent says when Collins finally stopped and got out of his vehicle, he showed a weapon in a threatening manner and was fatally shot by Gibe.

Vincent says Gibe remains on paid leave while the shooting is investigated.
