Oklahoma authorities investigate fire death

OSBI and the McClain County Sheriff's Office are investigating a fiery death in Lindsay.

Two Lindsay police officers were first on scene. Officers were able to block him on a nearby access road. Authorities say the man repeatedly charged at officers with the vehicle, almost hitting them. The 35-year-old deaf man was fatally shot by Oklahoma police after reportedly refusing to obey officers' commands. They believed that he man was dumping gas in the vehicle and waving a gun. The man then pulled out a lighter, which resulted in the officer's taser being utilized.

Arlington police spokeswoman Sgt. Vanessa Harrison told the paper they were aware of the risk of using a "stun gun" near gasoline, but said Olivas was "very frantic and erratic and became a danger to everyone in the room".

Officials say that officers were forced to make a calculated decision in order to avoid a tragedy like those recently in Texas and New York City.

A fire ignited, burning the man beyond recognition and injuring the officer who deployed his taser. The officer was hurt and taken to a hospital. The suspect passed away.

The subject was also reportedly suicidal.

In February 2015, a Virginia man led police on a pursuit and ultimately crashed his auto, which led to his clothes being soaked in gasoline. Police said that Lopez had poured gasoline over himself and the Taser was used after pepper spray was ineffective.
