ALTUS, Oklahoma -

OSBI agents are investigating following an officer-involved shooting in Altus Saturday.

Saturday afternoon, Altus Police were called to home at 1213 Frisco to serve a felony arrest warrant on 35-year-old Pete Mendoza Miranda, Jr.  Miranda had barricaded himself with a handgun inside a bedroom of the home. After a short period, Miranda fled and officers pursued on foot.

Miranda ran to a vacant lot in the 700 block of S. Hickman and took cover behind an abandoned vehicle.

Altus Police said Miranda drew a pistol from a holster beneath his coat and pointed it at an officer. That’s when one officer fired several shots.  Miranda was hit twice in the chest before he surrendered himself to police. He was transported to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. 

Miranda has since been released and booked into the Jackson County Jail on a felony warrant for concealing stolen property, possession of controlled and dangerous drugs, and use of a firearm while committing a felony.

OSBI agents will continue to investigate and compile a report for the DA. The DA will determine whether the shooting was justified.
