OSBI investigating officer-involved shooting in Chickasha

Ponca City Now - March 28, 2019 10:54 am

The Chickasha Police Department requested the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation to help investigate an officer-involved shooting that occurred at approximately 9:45 p.m. on Wednesday.

The call originated as a domestic disturbance where the suspect, 47-year-old Kevin Samuel Capers, was allegedly threatening his girlfriend with a knife. Three officers responded to the residence and were subsequently threatened by Capers, who refused to put the knife down.

Capers was shot by officers and died at the scene. He was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. There were no other injuries.

The officers involved are on administrative leave.
