Bodycam Footage Released From Deadly Officer-Involved Shooting In SW OKC

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Police released bodycam footage from a deadly officer-involved shooting that took place on the southwest side of the metro in late June.

On June 25, officers were called out to reports of a black male carrying gun and pointing it at vehicles in the area of SW 15th Street and S. Robinson Avenue.

When officers arrived they located the suspect, 24-year-old Deveonte Johnson, carrying a handgun. On the bodycam footage, you can hear the officers repeatedly ask Johnson to drop his weapon. When he refused, Officer Clayton Sargent opened fire three times and struck Johnson twice. Johnson was transported from the scene, but later died at the hospital.

In the original report, police stated that Johnson raised his weapon and refused to lower it. However, the footage that was released showed Johnson held the weapon at his side throughout the altercation.

Police say in two weeks the criminal investigation will be turned over to the District Attorney’s office. The DA will decided whether or not charges will be filed in the case. An administrative investigation will begin soon.
