DIBBLE, Oklahoma -

A man was shot and injured after he reportedly threatened law enforcement officials with a gun early Monday morning in McClain County. 

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI,) at about 3 a.m. authorities responded to the report of shots fired in Dibble. The person who called police said a man down the street had been making verbal threats and that the shots could have come from him.

Officers knocked on the door in the 21000 block of MacArthur Avenue. The suspect, later identified as Todd Sparks, opened the door with a gun in his hand. Sparks raised the gun at officers and one McClain County deputy shot Sparks. Sparks was transported to an area hospital for what appears to be a non-life threatening injury.

No officers were injured. The McClain County Sheriff’s Department requested OSBI investigate the shooting. Numerous OSBI special agents arrived on the scene early Monday morning to investigate.

Once the investigation is completed, agents will deliver a comprehensive report to the district attorney. The district attorney will determine if the shooting was justified.
