OSBI Agents Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting In Lone Grove
LONE GROVE, Oklahoma - Authorities are investigating an officer-involved shooting in Carter County over the weekend.
It happened Saturday morning in the town of Lone Grove. According to the report, a Lone Grove police officer and a Carter County Sheriff’s deputy were called out to a home on a report of a suicidal person.
When the two arrived, they say they knocked on the door and initially no one answered. Second later, however, they say 28-year-old Travis Graham opened the door and pointed a gun at the officer. The officer opened fire, with at least one round hitting Graham. He was transported to a hospital in Denton, Texas where he remains in unknown condition. Neither the officer nor the deputy were injured in the altercation.
