The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a Comanche County deputy shot and killed a suicidal subject at a home in Cache late Friday.

The OSBI says 52-year-old David Swaatsky was shot shortly before midnight while walking toward law officers and pointing a gun at them. He was pronounced dead at the scene.   

The agency says deputies responding to a report of a suicidal person at the home found Swaatsky in a bedroom and when he came out of the room he refused to put down the gun before being shot.  No one else was injured.  

The deputy's name was not released.

The OSBI said its agents are investigating the shooting.
