Oklahoma County, OK – Deputies responded to a disturbance on Dec. 26 at 12320 Connelly Drive. When the deputies arrived, they encountered a man sitting on the porch of a trailer. When the officers approached the man, he went inside the trailer before returning with a shotgun and a rifle.
The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office said in a release that the deputies “used a tremendous amount of restraint, fell back, called for back-up” and also called upon the sheriff department’s SWAT unit.
The SWAT members arrived in an armored vehicle called a BearCat. The suspect, 50-year-old Freddie Shatswell, then fired several rounds at the vehicle. The vehicle’s armor protected the men inside from the danger. Shatswell then fled and SWAT members secured the immediate area.
