A suspect who allegedly threatened suicide by cop died after a shootout with Sallisaw Police on Wednesday, KFSM reports.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting.

Police searched for Jamie Huskey, 45, after he allegedly hit his sister with a gun and fired into her home Wednesday morning, according to Fort Smith police.

Witnesses said Huskey was armed and threatened “suicide by cop,” the report says.

Sallisaw Police found Huskey’s vehicle around 1:00 Wednesday afternoon and later found him at a McDonalds in Sallisaw, KFSM reports.

OSBI said officers approached Huskey, who refused to show his hand from under the table. They said officers were in close contact when Huskey fired a shot.

OSBI said an officer fired back and hit Huskey.

They said Huskey was treated and taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

No officers were hurt, according to KSFM.
