ALVA, Oklahoma -- An Alva teacher who was being investigated on allegations of inappropriate sexual contact with a student apparently shot himself, a Woods' County sheriff's report said.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours of Oct. 4.  Sheriff's deputies had traveled to the rural home of Michael Lyn Conner, 56, south of Alva to investigate.  Deputies spoke with his wife and observed Conner sitting in a parked car.

The report said officers approached the vehicle and saw and heard one gunshot from inside the car.  They discovered Conner with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Officers attempted life-saving procedures until an ambulance arrived, but Conner was pronounced dead at Share Medical Center in Alva.

Conner's body was transported to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office in Oklahoma City.  The investigation is ongoing.
