BOISE CITY, Okla. (AP) – A man shot and killed outside a Boise City convenience story has been identified as a 71-year-old Alva man.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Thursday that Charles Nieman was shot after getting out of his pickup truck in the parking lot of the Loaf N’ Jug just after 1 p.m. Wednesday and died a short time later at a Boise City hospital.
