CACHE, OK (KSWO) -The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is looking into a fatal officer-involved shooting that happened in Cache Friday night.

Just before midnight Friday, the Comanche County Sheriff's Department was called out to a home near Southwest Whitetail and Gore Boulevard for a person who was suicidal. When officers arrived, they determined 52-year-old David Swatsky had a gun and was threatening to shoot any law enforcement who came on his property.

Agents say the deputies entered the home and found that Swatsky was holed up inside a bedroom. Eventually, officers talked him out of the bedroom, but he refused to put down a gun and was pointing it at officers. Deputies repeatedly requested Swatsky to put the gun down. He started to walk toward officers with the gun pointed in their direction when one deputy fired his weapon one time.

Swatsky stopped breathing and officers and emergency crews worked to revive him. He was eventually pronounced dead at the scene. The sheriff's department immediately called OSBI agents to investigate the fatal shooting. No one else was injured.

The Comanche County District Attorney's Office will determine if the shooting was justified. OSBI will not release the officer's name unless the deputy is arrested or charged with a crime.
