The official said Chickasha Police Department personnel requested OSBI’s presence in the 1100 block of North Tennessee at 6:45 p.m.

Officials say Chickasha officers were called to the house on a suicidal woman who had a gun.

When officers responded, they found a man and a woman outside the residence. The woman was in possession of a firearm.

Authorities say the woman did not respond to officers’ commands to put the weapon down and ran inside the residence. The woman then fired multiple shots from inside the residence.

According to the OSBI, at some time during the interaction, the woman raises the gun and points it at officers. At which point, an officer fires their weapon.

Afterwards, officers say the woman continued walking around the residence with the gun refusing commands to put the weapon down.

Officers hear another gunshot from inside the house. They enter the house and find her deceased, OSBI says.

The OSBI does not release the names of the officers involved unless charges are filed by the District Attorney.

The Medical Examiner will determine the manner of death.

The woman’s name is not being released at this time due to next of kin notification.

There is no additional information to be released at this time.
