(AP) — Oklahoma City police say an off-duty police officer shot and killed a Kansas man outside an Oklahoma City concert.police.jpg

Capt. Dexter Nelson said Friday that Sgt. Paul Galyon shot 24-year-old Brian Simms Jr. of Olathe, Kan., late Thursday at the Farmers Public Market in Oklahoma City. Nelson says the shooting occurred outside a concert by Chicago-based rap artist Chief Keef.

Nelson says Galyon and another officer were working off-duty outside the concert venue when they saw a man who appeared to be unconscious in a car. Nelson says the officers approached and saw the man had a gun in his waistband.

Nelson says Galyon opened fire when Simms did not comply with orders and confronted the officers. Galyon has been placed on paid leave pending an investigation into the shooting.

    Got what he deserved. All he had to do was comply with the officers request. Walk a day in police shoes and you will understand.

      obey the Constitution, you don’t have to answer any questions for the police UNLESS you are being detained, then you still don’t have to answer any with out legal representation

    So arguing with a officer means you should die?! If the article said he tried to grab his gun or he threatened them with it that would be understandable. But since it does not say that, this reads as murder.

    I myself would not obey commands very well when I am asleep, that cop must have been a rookie or just tired of all the BS that is involved when working a concert.
