  • An incident involving the discharge of a McLoud officer's firearm at the scene of a call Sunday night remains under investigation.
    District Attorney Richard Smothermon said the case involves an officer who reportedly discharged his weapon toward a suspect who had a firearm.
    "No one was shot," Smothermon said of the incident, adding the suspect with the firearm was arrested on a complaint of pointing a firearm.
    Smothermon, who had no other details Monday, said he's awaiting further reports from McLoud police.
    While he also didn't have the name of the alleged suspect, jail records with the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center show McLoud police had one arrest that resulted in a book-in about 3 a.m. Monday.
    Jail rosters show Tylind A. Phillips, 18, was jailed on a complaint of pointing firearms and failure to comply with a lawful order, with bond set at $10,000. Formal charges have not been filed.
    A McLoud dispatcher referred calls for information to Smothermon's office and a phone message to a McLoud police official seeking further details was not returned Monday.
    Further information, including if the officer is on any type of administrative leave, could not be obtained.
    Watch for updates.
