Two are killed in shoot-out in OKC
Two people are dead after a shoot-out with law enforcement officers Tuesday night.
Their identities have not been released.
No officers were injured in the incident, Oklahoma City police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.
From a briefing at the scene, Nelson said that about 7:40 p.m., members of the U.S. Marshals Metro Fugitive Task Force were attempting to serve felony warrants on two people at a hotel near Interstate 35 and SE 44, Nelson said.
The pair were spotted by officers, but attempted to flee in a vehicle. After police vehicles collided with the suspects’ vehicle, shots were fired and officers returned fire, he said.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene, and another pronounced dead at a hospital, Nelson said.
The investigation is very preliminary, with Oklahoma City police, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and U.S. Marshals on the scene, he said.
