The mother of a 22-year-old man who died this week after exchanging gunfire with Tulsa police says her son was a military veteran whose behavior likely was the result of post-traumatic stress disorder.
Cody W. Young, 22, was shot by Officer Gene Hogan about 6 a.m. Wednesday at an apartment building on Rockford Avenue near 11th Street.
Officers had been dispatched to the location about 1 a.m. and observed Young standing in a second-story window armed with a shotgun, police said. Investigators said officers could hear Young mumbling something but were unable to make out what he was saying.
Police said Young pointed the gun at officers, firing at least one round.
