OSBI Investigates Officer-Involved Vehicular Fatality in Lawton

At approximately 3 o’clock this morning the Lawton Police Department requested OSBI investigative assistance regarding an officer-involved vehicular fatality.  Lawton police had responded to a domestic assault at the Super 9 Motel at 12th and Cache Road.  Upon arrival, the male subject involved fled in a vehicle and a pursuit ensued.  Officers lost sight of the vehicle and the pursuit was terminated.

Shortly after, another officer reported seeing the vehicle and engaged in a second pursuit.  The officer then called for medical personnel at the intersection of 70th and Kingsbury.  Medical personnel pronounced the man dead at the scene.  The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. 

OSBI agents spent hours documenting and collecting evidence to reconstruct the scene.  OHP fatality accident investigators responded to OSBI's request and provided valuable assistance in being able to ultimately determine exactly what happened. Once completed, all findings will be turned over to the district attorney for review.
