**The following update is based on an ongoing investigation, which continues to evolve as the OSBI interviews witnesses and collects evidence. The OSBI’s understanding of the facts and circumstances may change as additional witnesses are interviewed and additional evidence is collected and analyzed.**

BLACKWELL, OKLA. – The Blackwell Police Department has requested that the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation investigate an officer-involved shooting that occurred in the early morning hours Monday in Blackwell.

The incident began at approximately 3 a.m. when the Blackwell Police Department received calls that shots were fired and a vehicle had been struck in the 1300 block of South Main in Blackwell. Officers arrived and began working the scene. Shortly thereafter, dispatch received additional calls of shots being fired from a white pickup truck at various locations around town.

Officers located the pickup truck and a pursuit began and shots were exchanged. Eventually the pickup came to a stop at 13th and Doolin Avenue. When officers approached the truck, they found 34-year-old Micheal Ann Godsey deceased in the driver seat. She was the only passenger in the truck.

Two Blackwell Police Department officers were involved in the shooting. One sustained minor injuries in the incident. Both are on paid administrative leave.

The OSBI Investigative and Crime Scene Units responded to the scene.
