May 20, 2019

BLACKWELL, Okla. (AP) — Investigators say a 34-year-old woman is dead following an exchange of gunfire with police in northern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says Michael Ann Godsey died early Monday after gunshots were fired in Blackwell, about 93 miles (150 kilometers) north of Oklahoma City.

The shooting occurred around 3 a.m. following reports that gunfire had struck a vehicle and additional gunfire was coming from a white pickup truck at various locations around the Kay County city.

Police say officers pursued the truck and gunfire was exchanged before it came to a stop. Officers found Godsey’s body in the driver’s seat. She was the only occupant.

The OSBI says one of two officers involved in the shooting sustained minor injuries. Both are on paid administrative leave. They haven’t been identified.
