Interviews with officers in fatal shooting still pending

EDMOND, Okla. (AP) – Police in Edmond have yet to interview two officers involved in the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager who was naked and had broken into a home.

Edmond police spokeswoman Jenny Wagnon said Thursday that investigators are working with attorneys for Sgt. Milo Box and Officer Denton Scherman to arrange interviews.

Wagnon says the two officers followed 17-year-old Isaiah Mark Lewis into the home Monday and at least one fired multiple times after a struggle with the teen and a stun gun failed to subdue him.

Vicki Lewis, the teen’s mother, said Wednesday during a press conference broadcast on the Oklahoma City Black Lives Matter Facebook page that she wants more answers about her son’s death.
