DEVELOPING: Lawton Woman Died of Self-Inflicted Shot

LAWTON Okla_ The woman shot to death last week in Lawton was not killed by the officer's gun, after all.

The medical examiner's office confirms Lauren Haskins shot herself. The report states she died of gunshot wound to the head, but the M.E. also says the officer did shoot Haskins. That bullet was in the torso and was not the fatal shot.

7News reported Monday that Haskins' husband said his wife was a former soldier who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.

He said the disease got the best of her last Thursday, when she threatened suicide. Police did try to stop her from taking her own life. First, they used a non-lethal weapon to try to deter her, but fired a real round at her, striking her torso.

The medical examiner's report suggests she then shot herself in the head.
