OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -

Three police officers are on administrative leave while officials investigate the death of a man outside an Oklahoma movie theater.

Moore police spokesman Jeremy Lewis says Luis Rodriguez died after an altercation with officers early Saturday morning in a parking lot at a theater in the central Oklahoma city.

Rodriguez's wife, Nair, and daughter, Luinahi, told local media that the two women had gotten into a fight inside the theater and Luis Rodriguez chased them into the parking lot. Lewis says that when officers attempted to question Luis Rodriguez, he was uncooperative. He was handcuffed and placed on the ground. That's when his family says police beat him and he died.

Lewis says police are reviewing a cellphone video that captured the incident.

The officers' names have not been released.
