Suspect dies following Wagoner County shootout
CATOOSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office was in a standoff Saturday evening with a man who has barricaded himself in a home near South 273rd East Avenue and East 5th Street in Catoosa.
Officials received the call of a shots fired just before 5 p.m. When they arrived on scene, they found a man refusing to come out of a travel trailer.
The sheriff's office says the suspect began firing shots out of the home at about 5:30 p.m. Deputies returned fire.
At this time, officials say no one has been injured, but they are not certain of the suspect's condition inside the travel trailer.
WCSO says the suspect stayed inside the home for seven hours.
Multiple agencies responded including Rogers County Sheriff's Office and OHP.
When officials were finally able to enter the RV, they found the suspect dead with multiple gunshot wounds. They believe he died from injuries sustained in the shootout earlier that evening.
Deputies found a weapon similar to an AR-15 next to the suspect.
Officials know who the man is, but will not release his information until family has been notified.
