    Story Highlights

    • Owasso police involved in a shooting near North 151st East Avenue and East 108th Place North.
    • One man was shot and later died at a Tulsa hospital.
    • Police say the investigation has been handed over to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
    • OSBI identified the suspect as Duane Preciado, 39.

    An officer-involved shooting turned deadly in normally quiet Owasso on Wednesday.

    Police were called for a welfare check near North 151st East Ave and East 108th Place North. 

    They say a man came out of the home with an AK-47 and a semi-automatic pistol. He allegedly began walking toward officers. OSBI says he made threatening comments while moving toward officers. 

    They told him to drop the weapons, and say he did not drop them. Officers say they fired as he approached. 

    The subject was taken to the hospital, but later died. 

    OSBI identified the man as 39-year-old Duane Preciado. 

    Family members told FOX23 that Preciado served more than 16 years in the U.S. Air Force and was a reserve in the Air National Guard. He did two tours in Afghanistan, one in Iraq and suffered from Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

    The welfare check was called in because a friend of Preciado was concerned about him and wanted someone to check in.

    FOX23's Cailey Dougherty broke down the latest in a Facebook live video: 

    The officers who fired will be placed on administrative leave. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is now investigating the shooting. 

    The officers had body cameras; officers told FOX23 they are still working to find out if the cameras caught the incident. 

    They reiterated this kind of incident is uncommon for Owasso, and the last officer-involved shooting in the city happened in 2010.
