An investigation is ongoing by state investigators after a man was shot and wounded by Shawnee police after he allegedly pointed a gun at officers responding to an overnight domestic disturbance.
Shawnee Police Chief Chief Mason Wilson said officers responded to 40209 Wolverine Road at 2:33 a.m. Thursday for that domestic disturbance. Officers were advised a suspect was armed with a handgun and a shotgun, but other residents were unsure of his whereabouts.
As officers were checking the rural residence and the yard, they encountered the suspect and he allegedly pointed a firearm at the officers, Wilson said.
That man was later identified by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation as Dakota Price, 27.
“One officer fired, striking Price,” the OSBI reported, with Price being transported to an Oklahoma City hospital for treatment of that gunshot wound.
It was believed Price was at OU Medical Center, but no patient was listed by that name Thursday evening and Price's updated medical condition has not yet been disclosed by the OSBI.
The OSBI said no officers were injured during the confrontation; the Shawnee Police Department requested OSBI to investigate.
Once the OSBI's probe is complete, a comprehensive report will be turned over to the Pottawatomie County District Attorney's Office for review and a ruling on whether the shooting was justified.
The OSBI does not release names of involved officers unless they are charged with a crime.
