The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation released further information Tuesday afternoon on a shooting in Sulphur which injured a Sulphur Police officer and an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper.

Lisa Colleen Schaatveld, 45, was critically injured in the incident and was flown to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.

The OSBI said Tuesday that just before 3 p.m. Monday, a 911 call was placed to the Sulphur Police Department alerting law enforcement to a woman with a gun at 816 W. 12th.

When officers arrived, they found Schaatveld inside the business at that location with a gun. She pointed the gun at herself several times during a nearly 5-hour-long standoff with police officers.

OSBI agents are told Schaatveld pointed the gun at officers at approximately 8 p.m. Numerous officers fired their weapons, striking Schaatveld several times in the upper extremity of her body. She was flown to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City and is currently listed in critical condition.

One Sulphur officer and one Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper were injured during the shooting, the OSBI reported. Both were transported to a local hospital where they were treated and released.

The Sulphur Police Department requested OSBI investigate the officer-involved shooting.

After the shooting, Angela Sealy, 46, was arrested at the scene for assault and battery on a police officer and obstructing an officer during the performance of their duties. She was booked into the Sulphur city jail.
