HOOKER, Okla. (AP) — Law enforcement officers shot and killed a man after a police chase in the Panhandle town of Hooker, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Monday.

In a news release, the agency said Scott Osborn, 47, was killed Sunday night. Officers from several agencies were at the scene, and the OSBI did not report which officers fired shots at Osborn or why police initiated a traffic stop.

Hooker police were trying to stop a vehicle Osborn was driving about 7:15 p.m. Sunday when, after a short chase, he stepped from the vehicle with a handgun, the OSBI reported.

After a standoff of nearly three hours, Osborn pointed his gun at the officers, who then opened fire on the suspect, the OSBI reported.

Officers from Hooker Police Department, Texas County Sheriff’s Office, District One District Attorney’s Task Force and Goodwell Police Department all were on the scene, the OSBI reported.
