UPDATE 12:05 p.m.

The OSBI has released details of an officer involved shooting in Lawton which happened around 2 a.m.

According to the OSBI, the suspect attempted to break into an apartment at the Pepper Tree apartments in west Lawton.

They say he broke down the door and forced his way into an apartment and made a female resident remove her clothing. The woman was able to safely escape the apartment.
