Deadly officer-involved shooting in Mannford ruled justified

MANNFORD, Okla. — UPDATE (5/22/2018): The district attorney has ruled the shooting justified.


Police shot and killed a suspect in Mannford Wednesday, according to officials.

The shooting reportedly happened in the street near Greenbriar and Glenwood Wednesday.

OSBI officials say police were called to the area by a woman concerned about a suspicious man.

When officers arrived, they came in contact with Mark Allen Lunn.

Lunn reportedly refused to comply with their orders and began walking away while pulling off his clothing.

Lunn then allegedly pulled a large knife from his pants and charged toward the officers.

Officers said they told Lunn to drop the knife several times, but instead, Lunn reportedly moved toward the officers with the knife.

Two officers fired their weapons and shot Lunn.

He died at the scene.

OSBI investigators said the incident was not captured on camera.

Officials say that Lunn was not from Mannford, but he had family that lived in the area.

Investigators said that officers had responded to a nearby home for a domestic incident Tuesday night. They said they encountered Lunn at least twice in the days before the shooting.

OSBI agents are interviewing witnesses at the scene and will turn over their report to the district attorney. The district attorney will then determine if the shooting was justified.
