Woman wanted for violent crimes dies after being hit by patrol car

Madison Dickson is dead after an officer-involved shooting near east 91st Street and South Harvard Avenue (KTUL).

Madison Dickson is dead after a violent confrontation near East 91st Street and South Harvard Avenue.

Both 21-year-old Dickson and two officers exchanged fire, but no one was shot. Dickson died at the hospital after being struck by a patrol car, according to police.

There are no reports of any bullets hitting the nearby school or neighborhood.

Dickson was wanted on at least six charges, including shooting with intent to kill, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, unauthorized use of a vehicle, attempted petit larceny and discharging a firearm in a public place. She was accused of shooting a woman at a south Tulsa Walgreens March 12 and shooting a man in the head in midtown March 16.

In 2014, Dickson made her first appearance in the court system when she was charged with obstruction of an officer, larceny from Walmart and possession of a controlled substance. She was charged in 2015 for unauthorized use of a vehicle and assault and battery when she stole an Osage County deputy's car following a traffic stop.

The officer driving the patrol car that hit Dickson did so to stop the threat of Dickson hurting other officers or anyone else, according to police. That officer is on administrative leave, but the two officers who fired at her are not on leave.

Police are questioning the driver of the vehicle she jumped from during the shootout. Dickson's relationship to the driver is unclear.

Police had information that led them to find her in this area of south Tulsa. Dickson, who also went by the name Tiffani Wasson, had reportedly been hiding out at the Sheridan Pond Apartments near East 81st Street and South Sheridan Avenue.
