CHICKASHA, Okla. – One person is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Chickasha.

Police say it started at around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday when officers were called to a home near 7th and Texas for a domestic disturbance.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a man, 47-year-old Kevin Samuel Capers, was allegedly threatening his girlfriend with a knife.

Three officers responded to the home and were reportedly threatened by Capers, “who refused to put the knife down,” OSBI officials say.

That’s when, according to Chickasha police, two officers fired their guns, killing the suspect. The officers, who are now on administrative leave, were not injured.

The name of the suspect and officers involved have not yet been released.
