LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. – Authorities in Logan County were on the scene of a reported officer-involved shooting Thursday.
Deputies with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about a man with a gun near Charter Oak and Douglas.
Initial reports indicate that the alleged suspect barricaded himself in a wooded area and was threatening the deputies.
Shortly before 5:15 p.m., witnesses told NewsChannel 4 that they heard multiple gunshots.
Officials with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office say there was an exchange of gunfire and the suspect was shot and killed.
