OSBI Agents Help Investigate Shooting Death in Bryan County

The Bryan County Sheriff’s Office called OSBI agents to a shooting early this morning in the Wade community. At approximately 12:30 a.m. Thursday, Parker Allen Tyson (d.o.b. 3-22-1985), of Bennington, kicked in the door to the home at 14 Main Street. Tyson was armed with a handgun at the time. When Tyson kicked in the door, another person inside the home fired a handgun at Tyson striking him several times. Emergency medical personnel transported Tyson to the Medical Center of Southeast Oklahoma in Durant. Doctors pronounced Tyson dead at 2:42 a.m.

No one has been arrested at this time. Agents and deputies have conducted numerous interviews and collected evidence at the scene. Agents will compile a comprehensive report of the findings in this case and present that report to the district attorney’s office. The D.A. will determine how to proceed.
