LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has identified a man shot and killed by police in Lawton Sunday evening.

The OSBI said in a Facebook post Quadry Sanders was shot and killed by Lawton Police Sunday night after officers were called to a violation of a protective order on NW Lincoln Ave.

OSBI officials said the person who called 911 said Sanders was waving a gun in the house.

When officers got to the scene, OSBI said officers requested for Sanders to come out of the house, and that he walked outside and then went back in before coming out of the front.

At that point, OSBI said a confrontation with police occurred in front of the home before Sanders was shot.

Officers also attempted life saving measures until EMS arrived to transport Sanders to the hospital.

Lawton police issued a statement Monday evening.

“I wanted to offer my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends who have been affected by this incident. Our hearts go out to the family of Mr. Sanders as well as the officers and their families during this time,” Chief James Smith said.

The police department will also be cooperating with OSBI.

Court documents show that Sanders’ wife filed a protective order against him on Oct. 7, one day before charges were filed against him for domestic abuse, which was still pending.

Court records show the protective order expired on Dec. 2, and his wife said the two were about to get back together.

The wife, who did not want to go on camera, said she actually called Sanders to come over and remove a person she didn’t want at the home.

When police got there, officers asked Sanders to come outside.

His wife came out first, and she said officers put her in the back of a police car, where she watched the shooting happen.

A next door neighbor said watching the shooting felt like something a person should only see in a warzone.
