OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police say the officer who shot and killed a man outside a northwest Oklahoma City medical facility is an 11-year-veteran of the department.
Police said Tuesday that 34-year-old Sgt. Jeffrey Pope shot 23-year-old Patrick Trevino in the parking lot of the Human Performance Center-Physical Therapy Office on Monday.
Capt. Patrick Stewart said witnesses reported Trevino tried to take the holstered weapon of Pope - and was trying to take the weapon of Officer John Revel when Pope opened fire.
The two officers were responding to reports of a fight in the lobby of the center. Witnesses say they were trying to arrest Trevino when he first tried to grab Pope's weapon.
Pope is on administrative leave pending an investigation into the shooting.
