Burglary suspect killed in shootout in Temple

Cotton Co._A shootout between a burglary suspect and law enforcement officials in Temple, Oklahoma, ended with the suspect being shot to death.   The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Cotton County deputy had tracked the suspect to a house on West Ohio St. in Temple, where a van the suspect was believed to be driving was parked.

"When they did find him at this location in Temple, he drew out a deer rifle and started shooting at the officers," said Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Inspector Richard Goss.  "Two of the officers, at least two that we're aware of at this time, actually engaged him in a fire fight. He was deceased, shot and killed at that time."

Inspector Goss says those officers were from the Cotton County Sheriff's Department and Temple Police Department.

Goss says it appears the victim was friends with the people at the house, yet they hadn't seen him in a long time.

Agents are still trying to find out where the victim got the rifle and ammunition.  The suspect's name has not been released.
