A man was killed in an officer-involved shooting while officers were investigating a deadly robbery at a southwest Oklahoma City gas station, police said. 

According to authorities, officers responded to robbery call about 2:20 a.m. at a 7-Eleven in the 12200 block of W Reno Avenue near N Czech Hall Road. 

When officers arrived, they found 63-year-old Ross Garrett dead with apparent gunshot wounds. The suspect ran away before officers arrived. 

Shortly after, police received a tip that the robbery suspect was at a home in the 10900 block of SW 33rd Street near S Sara Road and SW 29th Street.
