(Tulsa-AP) -- A teen-ager killed by police in Glenpool will be
buried today.

Funeral services for 18-year-old Dusty Cagle will be held in
Tulsa.

Police say Cagle was driving a stolen pickup truck when it
turned on police officers, prompting them to shoot. Cagle and his
17-year-old passenger, Andy Ridgeway, died in the Saturday night
incident.

Funeral services for Ridgeway were held Wednesday in Bixby. An
estimated 150 people attended.

A spokeswoman for the state medical examiner said Cagle died
from a gunshot wound to the head. The official cause of death on
Ridgeway is pending.

District Attorney Tim Harris says that because of the sensitive
nature of the shootings he won't rush a ruling on whether officers
were justified.

The two officers -- one from Jenks and one from Glenpool -- were
placed on routine leave.
