Officer kills suspect fighting partner for gun

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police say a domestic-violence suspect is
dead after he grabbed the gun of an officer whose partner then shot
the suspect in a northside Tulsa home.
Authorities say the shooting occurred about 9:20 p.m. Friday
after two officers responded to a call of a domestic disturbance.
One of the officers tried to arrest the 26-year-old man, but
investigators say the man fought back, grabbing the arresting
officer's gun from its holster during the altercation. That
prompted the officer to call to his partner for help.
Police say the other officer fired at the suspect, striking him
twice.
Authorities have not provided names of either the man killed or
the two officers, both of them veterans of more than 15 years on
the Tulsa police force.
