MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating an officer-involved shooting in Muskogee in which a 21-year-old man was killed.

Muskogee Police Department Sergeant Michael Mahan says officers responded to a call around 4 p.m. Saturday about an apparent domestic disturbance involving a man and woman near a church. The woman had entered the church to attend a wedding but the man, identified as Terence Walker, was outside with a gun and asked her to come out.

The Muskogee Phoenix reports Walker ran from an officer who responded to the scene. While running, an item fell from him and Walker reached to pick it up. He then turned toward the officer.

The officer fired multiple times, killing Walker. Mahan says a loaded semi-automatic pistol was recovered near Walker’s body.
