GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -

A Guthrie teenager who was shot by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper during a scuffle has died from his injuries, the OHP confirmed with News 9 Tuesday morning.

Captain Paul Timmons with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirmed that 18-year-old Kenneth Brown has died from injuries he sustained during a shooting in Guthrie last month.

According to the OHP, Trooper Caleb Swickey stopped Brown for a traffic violation January 4. He discovered a 9 mm handgun on Brown during a pat-down. Brown allegedly fought the trooper upon the discovery of that weapon. The OHP said Trooper Swickey shot Brown in self-defense.

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

Gary James, General Counsel for the Oklahoma State Trooper Association, released this statement concerning the incident:

"This is the kind of incident that law enforcement faces daily, across the country. Thankfully, this incident took place in front of cameras to avoid any negative controversy law enforcement is having to deal with in their daily duties.

Due to such controversy, Trooper Caleb Swickey made sure to conduct his pat down search in front his vehicle so it would be documented by the dash camera in his patrol car. If not for Swickey's training and abilities we may have had a different outcome.”
