OSBI Takes Over Warr Acres Police-Involved Shooting Investigation

At the request of the Warr Acres police chief, OSBI will take over the investigation into the fatal police-involved shooting that happened Friday night near Southwest 119 and Morgan Road in Canadian County.

A Warr Acres police officer attempted to make a traffic stop on a motorcyclist in Warr Acres. The motorcyclist refused to stop and led that officer and others on a high speed chase. At the end of a dead end street, the cyclist was shot by the Warr Acres officer several times resulting in the cyclist's death. The cyclist is identified as Jon M. Sides (d.o.b. 5/14/1981). The officer is on routine paid administrative leave.

OSBI has taken control of all the evidence in the case and will begin interviewing any witnesses and other officers at the scene. Once the investigation is complete, OSBI will present the Canadian County district attorney a comprehensive report. The district attorney will determine if the shooting was justified.
