Oklahoma to study violent deaths

Updated:
(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Oklahoma is one of seven states receiving a 5-year grant to study violent deaths.

The $218,000 grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be used to develop an Oklahoma Violent Death Reporting System.

The system will collect information about homicides and suicides in the state from death certificates, medical examiner reports and police reports.

The information will be used in an effort to prevent violent deaths.

The state Department of Health, the state Bureau of Investigation, the Chief Medical Examiner and the state Association of Chiefs of Police will conduct the study.

Results of the study will be sent to the National Violent Death Reporting System at the CDC.
