OSBI Investigates Police-Involved Shooting in Seminole
The Seminole Police Department requested OSBI investigate a police-involved shooting in the city of Seminole Saturday evening. At approximately 7 p.m. a Seminole County law enforcement officer attempted to serve a felony warrant for Randall Palmer at his home, 1931 Killingsworth, Seminole, when Palmer’s 24-year-old son confronted the officer with a knife. That officer fired once striking Aaron Palmer (d.o.b. 7/31/1988) in the chest. Palmer was transported to a hospital in Shawnee where he died.
OSBI agents conducted numerous interviews at the scene including a Seminole police officer who was also helping serve the failure to comply with drug court warrant. That warrant had a $100,000 bond attached.
At the conclusion of the OSBI investigation, the district attorney will determine whether the shooting was justified.
The Seminole County law enforcement officer is on routine administrative leave. His name will not be released by the OSBI unless he is arrested, charged, or indicted.
