Police released bodycam footage from a deadly officer-involved shooting that took place on the southwest side of Oklahoma City in late June.
On June 25, officers were called out to reports of a black male carrying a gun and pointing it at vehicles in the area.
When officers arrived they located the suspect, 24-year-old Deveonte Johnson, carrying a handgun. On the bodycam footage, you can hear the officers repeatedly ask Johnson to drop his weapon. When he refused, Officer Clayton Sargent opened fire. Johnson was transported from the scene, but later died at the hospital.
Police say they have completed their criminal investigation of this incident, and will now turn it over to the District Attorney’s office for review in two weeks. An administrative investigation will begin soon.
