Man dead in Bartlesville police officer-involved shooting

team radio - June 3, 2019 2:21 pm

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) – Police in northeast Oklahoma say a man has died in an officer-involved shooting at a residence.
A Bartlesville police statement says the fatal shooting happened Saturday night as officers responded to a domestic disturbance.
Capt. Jay Hasting says a caller reported the parents of an adult son wanted him removed from the home because he appeared to be high on drugs. Two officers arrived, spoke with the parents and then contacted the son.
Hastings says officers radioed for backup and reported a Taser was deployed. The next response to dispatch was that shots were fired. The son died at the scene.
Bartlesville police didn’t immediately say who opened fire. Police didn’t immediately respond to messages Sunday seeking additional information.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation will also investigate.
