A Wagoner police officer shot and killed a man yesterday during an otherwise routine traffic stop, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

Wagoner Police Chief Bob Haley requested the OSBI investigate the shooting, which is fairly standard procedure.

About 9:15 a.m., a Wagoner police officer made a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet pickup truck for allegedly driving erratically. The stop was made at 201 South Inola Avenue.

Elisha Edward Kelley, 52, exited his truck and refused to follow verbal commands, according to the officer. Kelley allegedly became aggressive and charged at the officer. The officer fired multiple rounds with his handgun, striking Kelley multiple times. Kelley was transported to Wagoner Community Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

The OSBI will investigate the incident and provide the investigation to the District Attorney’s Office to determine whether the shooting was justified. The Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of Kelley’s death.
