Officers wound armed man who was wearing bullet-proof vest

The Associated Press - January 10, 2019 1:49 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Two Oklahoma City police officers shot and wounded an armed man who authorities say was wearing a bullet-proof vest.

Capt. Bo Mathews says 30-year-old Cody Alan Longstreet was shot about 4:30 a.m. Thursday and is expected to recover.

Mathews says police tried to pull over a stolen vehicle Longstreet was driving, but he initially refused to stop. Longstreet then abandoned the vehicle and ran with a gun in his hand while four officers chased him.

Mathews says Longstreet stopped and was shot with a stun gun to no effect, then was shot by Sgt. Joshua Castlebury and Officer Troy Nitzky when he turned toward them while holding a gun.

Police haven’t said why Longstreet was wearing the bullet-proof vest.

The shooting happened outside an elementary school that was later closed for the day.
