The son refused to let officers in and claimed he had weapons in the house, Nelson said.

“You don't force entry into a house without the legal right to be in the house. That is why we tried to negotiate,” Nelson said.

Negotiators spoke to the son for more than 11 hours before police forced entry about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, he said.

Officers fired a bean bag shotgun at Hume.

He was taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries before being taken to the Oklahoma County jail.

The name and cause of death of the dead white woman found inside the home will be withheld until the state medical examiner's field review and positive identification has been completed, Nelson said.
