Officials with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation confirmed to News 4 that agents were called to assist the Noble Police Department following an officer-involved shooting.

Investigators say the shooting took place near 2nd and Walnut in Noble.

"A traffic stop was attempted to be initiated by one of the patrol officers and ended at this residence behind us," explained Agent Steve Tanner with the OSBI.

Officers say 37-year-old Layland Lewis Jr, of Norman, was behind the wheel and pulled the vehicle into the driveway.

"The individual brandished a firearm at the officer," said Agent Tanner. "The officer was giving commands for him to show his hands. He did not comply with the demands and the officer fired his firearm."

Agents say Lewis was hit more than once. He was initially transported to Norman Regional then transferred to OU Medical.

Authorities say Lewis has a warrant out of Cleveland County for armed robbery.
