The Natrona County Coroner has identified the man killed in a police shooting in east Casper late Sunday, according to a news release.
Coroner Connie Jacobson said he is 36-year-old Douglas One Year.
One Year will undergo an autopsy as part of the ongoing investigation, Jacobson said.
The incident happened when officers responded to a threatening call at the Loaf 'n Jug, 1510 Centennial Court.
The female clerk told dispatch a male came into the store wielding a sword and had threatened her. He physically assaulted her. The man left the store. The clerk did not receive any injuries requiring immediate medical attention.

During the confrontation, officers fired their service weapons at him. They gave medical attention to the man, who died at the scene.
The case has been turned over to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, and the officers have been placed on administrative leave during the investigation. Both officers were uninjured.
