The Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office declined to file charges against an Oklahoma City police officer who fired his gun at his home last month.

Saturday’s press release did not provide any additional information regarding this case.

Last month, officers received a call from the officer’s wife and she told police her husband was acting strange.

After officers arrived at 12900 Block of Cypress they took the unnamed officer to an area hospital for a mental health evaluation.

Residents in the area say the surrounding schools were on lock down for a short time while police made contact with the officer.

Although no charges were filed, it is a crime to discharge a firearm within city limits.

An administrative investigation will continue to review the incident.
