Owasso police officers are investigating the stabbing death of a woman and the apparent suicide attempt and subsequent death of the suspect at mid-afternoon.

The suspect reportedly called his mother to tell her what had done. She rushed there with another son and found her son, who threatened to commit suicide.

Owasso police chief Jim Greene said officers responded to a residence about five blocks from the police station and found the man who began stabbing himself when they arrived.

Officers stopped the man and he was rushed to a Tulsa hospital where he died in surgery.

Chief Greene said the suspect was the apparent boyfriend of the woman who was babysitting two young boys at the residence.

The boys, approximate ages eleven and nine, were in a different part of the house at the time and apparently were not aware of what had happened.

Names are being withheld, pending notification of family members.
