Five Chickasha officers fired their weapons after Alex Warren Klingler, 61, fired a weapon several times from inside his Chickasha home at 3507 S. 4.

Officers were at Klingler’s home to serve a search warrant in relation to a reported aggravated assault and battery from that morning.

In all, seven officers were injured; at least two went to the hospital for gunshot wounds. Patrol Sgt. Matt Schoolfield remains in an Oklahoma City hospital. Officer Daniel Ramirez was treated and released.

OSBI will submit a lengthy report to the district attorney for review.
