Investigators arrest man after Broken Arrow policeman is shot

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — Broken Arrow police have arrested two men in connection with a shooting that hospitalized one officer.

Officials say a Broken Arrow police officer -- Cody Stanton -- responded Sunday morning to a home in the 2600 block of W. Galveston St.

Police say one of the people living at the home on W Galveston obtained an emergency protective order against Payne, but it hadn’t been served yet. It was reported that Payne had followed that person home, and her father, Dean Black, went on the front porch and waited on police to arrive.

Prior to the officer arriving, Hayden Ross Payne, 29, shot at Dean Black, according to police.

Black retreated inside the house and Payne drove off in a black Chevrolet Equinox, according to officials.

Police say their responding officer then approached the home and was shot in the arm after knocking on the door.

The officer reportedly then took cover and applied a tourniquet to control the bleeding until he could be transported to a hospital.

Officials arrested Black, 58, on a complaint of assault with a deadly weapon on an officer.

Investigators found Payne at a family home in Cleveland and his car at a shop Monday morning. He’s also been charged with shooting with intent to kill.

Officer Stanton, a 2-year veteran of the department, is expected to make a full recovery.

--police say Black saw Dean from afar and he started shooting at him. Black went inside and had minor injuries to his legs. That’s when an officer came to the front door to help Black, but black shot through the front door and injured the officers arm.
