Early Saturday morning, the Lone Grove Police Department received a call about a man making suicidal comments inside his home at 587 Fruit Street.
A Lone Grove officer and a Carter County Sheriff’s deputy responded. The Lone Grove officer knocked on the front door, but no one answered. Seconds later, a man opened the door, pointing a handgun at the officer. That officer shot several times. Travis Joe Graham, 28, was hit. He was transported to a hospital in Denton, Texas, where he remains.
The Lone Grove Police Department requested OSBI special agents investigate the officer-involved shooting. No one else was injured.
OSBI agents will conduct a thorough investigation and include the facts in a comprehensive written report to the district attorney. The DA will determine if the shooting was justified.
The officer is on routine administrative leave while the case is being investigated.
