The Okmulgee Police Department says its officers were involved in a deadly shooting early Thursday.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating. The Medical Examiner has identified the dead man as James Stutchman.
The shooting occurred at about 2 a.m. at the end of a police chase involving a 1993 Yukon SUV.
The agency says a police officer attempted to stop the SUV at Fourth and Woodlawn for a traffic violation, but the driver took off. The chase ended in the 1300 block of East First Street. When the driver got out of the SUV holding a weapon, the OSBI says police shot and killed the man.
