A man is dead after a struggle with an Oklahoma City Police officer Saturday night.

Police were called out to a home near Portland and 36th. According to OKC Police, the owners had a protective order against the suspect and called police to have him removed.

When one officer tried to see if the suspect was armed the man fought back.

"They were struggling. It was all during the struggle, the officer pulled his firearm and discharged it while they were on the ground struggling," said OKCPD Captain Dan Stewart.

That man was taken to the hospital where police say he died. Police say this is not the first time they've been called to this home.
