SULPHUR, Okla. - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is now investigating Monday night’s officer involved shooting in Sulphur.

Two law enforcement officers and a woman were involved in a shootout.

The woman, Lisa Schaapveld, was holed up inside her business with a gun after an argument with her girlfriend.

Investigators say she pointed a gun at officers after a 5-hour standoff.

It ended in a shootout.

One OHP trooper and a Sulphur police officer were shot.

Schaapveld was also hit by police gunfire several times.

Crime scene tape is still up around the dog grooming business where Schaapveld was.

Those closest to her say none of this sounds like their friend.

“This is so unbelievable that she did this,” Jimmy Carter said.

Carter is a good friend and runs the barbershop next door.

“Part of me last night thought, ‘if I can just get in there and talk to her we can get this thing resolved, if I could just get in there and say Lisa, knock this nonsense off,’ and from what I heard I think that's what Angie was trying to do,” Carter said.

Carter’s referring to Angela Seely, Lisa’s girlfriend.

Police arrested her Monday night for assault and battery on an officer and obstructing an officer during the performance of their duties.

Carter says Schaapveld was upset because she and Angie were fighting.

“Money was tight. She was doing her best to try to get things resolved, counseling and things like that,” Carter said.

Schaapveld is still in the hospital recovering from surgery.

She’s in critical condition.

The state trooper and Sulphur officer involved were treated at the hospital and are recovering at home.
