It began back on November 9th on what police call a "welfare check"...where officers see if a person is okay. Oklahoma City Police received that call when family members expressed concern about a 77-year-old woman staying with her 52-year-old son.
The house in question was near NE 27th Street and Bryant Avenue. Officers tried to check on the woman a couple of times, but the son would either tell them she was okay or that they simply could not come inside.
OKC Police Capt. Dexter Nelson tells NewsRadio 1000 KTOK they finally received a search warrant and served the warrant late yesterday afternoon. When they arrived, the man inside was armed.
They surrounded the house and a nearly 12-hour standoff ensued. It ended early today when officers forced entry, shot the man with a bean bag round, and later found a body inside the house.
Capt. Nelson says the State Medical Examiner's Office will have to determine the cause of death and identity of the victim.
In the meantime, Capt. Nelson says the man will be facing two counts of pointing a firearm at officers and a single count of murder in the first degree.
