DAVIS, Okla. (KXII) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation released more information Thursday afternoon on an officer-involved shooting in Davis Wednesday night that left a man dead.

According to OSBI, the Murray County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday when someone called 911 from the 100 block of Pence St. in Davis to report a domestic disturbance.

One Davis police officer arrived and found Christopher George in the yard.

George initiated an altercation with the officer, eventually gaining possession of the officer’s service weapon.

That’s when a second Davis officer arrived, according to OSBI.

During the altercation, George fired one round from the officer’s service weapon, but no one was hit.

George continued struggling with the officer and eventually raised the gun.

That’s when the second officer fired his weapon multiple times, killing George.

OSBI said one officer was taken to the hospital to be checked out and has been released.

OSBI says their investigation remains active and will submit their report to the District Attorney’s Office upon completion.

They will then determine whether any charges will be filed.
