EDMOND, Okla. - Authorities are investigating following an officer-involved shooting that happened at a mobile home on Monday night.

Around 9 p.m. on Monday, officers from the Edmond Police Department received a call from a mobile home, located in the 300 block of Dennis St.

The caller told dispatchers that a man with a rifle was arguing with people at the home and would not leave.

The caller was able to identify the man as 25-year-old Autrayus McGee. McGee is wanted out of McCurtain County for robbery, rape, forcible sodomy, kidnapping and burglary with a $1.5 million bond.

According to an affidavit, McGee and three others robbed a couple at gunpoint, taking $900 cash and two XBOX gaming systems before pointing a gun at their infant children and asking for more.

Police say two men also raped the woman at the house and kidnapped the man, taking him to Idabel to rob his drug dealer.

"It’s a home invasion that happened this summer and they’ve been looking for him ever since," said Edmond Police spokesperson Jenny Wagnon. "Somebody was calling from inside that mobile home saying there was somebody trying to get in, wanting to stay there."

But when officers arrived, they could not find McGee.

At one point, authorities say an officer was flagged down by a woman who said that a man with a rifle was outside their home. She said he was asking for a ride and wanted to use their phone.

Others in the neighborhood saw the rifle too. Edwin Hernandez called police.

"I’m just thinking about me and my kids you know," he said. "I just don't want anyone to get hurt here, especially in a trailer park. I mean I've got my kids and everything. Everyone's asleep and you don't want no bullets flying everywhere, you know?"

Officers eventually tracked McGee down outside a mobile home, sitting with two others. Authorities say one person did not follow commands and attempted to run.

McGee was shot in the leg and was treated and released from a hospital overnight.

The officer was placed on administrative leave while the investigation continues. McGee is still being interviewed but will be transferred to the Oklahoma County Jail.

The people living in the mobile home community, meanwhile, are relieved McGee is in custody.

"I'm glad it's over," Hernandez said. "I'm not going to lie to you."
