A police shooting in Oklahoma City has killed a man who fired at officers from his home. It started with a complaint of harassing telephone calls.

When an officer knocked on the door, she was shot at, but it missed. The officer returned fire, hitting the suspect, but he continued shooting.

The man refused to surrender and wouldn't let his 14-year-old son out of the house. After several hours, the man stepped outside with a rifle and aimed it at officers. A hidden sniper fatally shot the suspect.

An investigation is underway.
