Based on the OSBI’s initial investigation, this is what is known at this time:

• The Tillman County Sheriff’s Office was investigating an incident that occurred the previous day. Deputies went to the 200 block of West Grand in Davidson to speak with a resident about the investigation they were conducting.

• Before deputies could ring the doorbell, gunfire came from inside the house.

• Deputies returned fire and sought cover from the gunfire.

• Gunfire continued to be exchanged between the suspect inside and the deputies outside.

• Tillman County requested backup from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) during the active shooter. OHP’s Tactical Team and the Frederick Police Department also responded.

• As the backup law enforcement agencies were getting their positions established, the suspect, 63-year-old Ken Fillmore, came out the front door of the residence carrying a rifle. He placed the rifle on the ground and was immediately taken into custody.

• Fillmore was transported to the Tillman County Jail.

• A member of the Tillman County Sheriff’s Office received minor injuries during the shooting. There were no other injuries.
