OSBI special agents are investigating an officer-involved fatal shooting in Sallisaw. The Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Department requested OSBI investigate.

The officers, searching for the suspect, located him inside the McDonald’s restaurant at 1006 S. Robert Kerr Blvd just before 2 pm. As the officers approached Jamie Huskey, 45, he refused to show his hands from under a table, the OSBI reports.

The officers were in close contact when Huskey allegedly fired one shot from under the table. One of the officers fired a shot back, mortally wounding Huskey. He was transported to a local hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Huskey was wanted for questioning relating to an incident of domestic violence involving a firearm earlier in the day in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Several OSBI special agents are on the scene collecting information and evidence.

Once the investigation is complete, agents will deliver a detailed report to the district attorney. The district attorney will determine if the shooting was justified.
