ODESSA, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Kansas City man who was fatally shot during a reported confrontation with a sheriff’s deputy last week.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/28UoyGT ) reports that 47-year-old Nicholas J. Ferro was shot by a deputy June 14.

The sheriff’s office says a deputy was responding to a call about two suspicious men asking for gasoline at a woman’s home when he found Ferro and another man in a parked car near the home. The sheriff’s office says the deputy shot Ferro when he displayed a gun.

The other man in the car, Glen E. Williams, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, driving with a revoked license and felony possession of burglary tools.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Williams has an attorney.
