ERICK, Okla. (AP) - Authorities in the western Oklahoma town of Erick say an explosion in a shed near the center of the town has left one man dead.

Police Chief Patrick Strange told KFOR (https://bit.ly/28bwaLV ) that the man’s body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy and positive identification.

Strange said the cause of the late Thursday night blast is not known, but that it does not appear to be drug-related or the result of foul play.

Erick is in western Oklahoma about seven miles from the Texas state line.
