ANADARKO, OK (KSWO) - An investigation is now underway after a man was killed by a police officer in Anadarko Wednesday afternoon. The investigation is being led by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations and the Anadarko Police Department.

The victim is 34 year old Henry James Hunter of Anadarko. 

The Anadarko Police Department were called out to Hunter's home just before 5 p.m. Wednesday afternoon on a disturbance call.
