SPERRY, Okla. — One man is dead after a deputy-involved shooting in Sperry late Wednesday night.

Deputies arrived at her home near East 76th Street North and N. Madison Ave. north of Tulsa while Cockrell was still inside.

Tulsa County Sheriff's Office said that is when Cockrell ran from the house into the woods nearby and a deputy chased after him. TCSO said Deputy Mic Bonin gave the man commands to stop and show his hands but at some point during the chase, the man reached for something in his pocket. That is when Bonin shot and killed him.

TCSO later released body cam footage of the moments leading up to the shooting. Watch it here:
