Police are releasing new details after a man, who walked away from a halfway house in Oklahoma City, allegedly charged at an officer.
On Wednesday, just after 6 p.m., an Oklahoma City police officer responded to the area of NW 10th and Villa after receiving a call of a suspicious person in the area.
When the officer, now identified as Officer Brandon Lee, arrived on scene, he saw the suspect, Kirk Dustin Shields, 38, standing in front of a residence with a crowbar in his hand.
Shields took off, running to the east side of the residence with Lee pursuing him. That’s when Shields turned and faced Lee with the weapon in his hand, police said.
