Suspect: Charged with murder
Probation/Parole Officer Jeffery McCoy was shot and killed while performing a pre-release supervision check at a home on Maple Drive in Midwest City, Oklahoma.
A male subject who lived at the home, but who was not the focus of Officer McCoy's visit, answered the door and immediately pushed Officer McCoy off the front porch. The man then attacked him and was able to gain control of his service weapon during the ensuing struggle. The subject shot Officer McCoy at least once before fleeing back into his home.
The man fired at officers from the Midwest City Police Department as they arrived at the scene. He was taken into custody moments later after he exited the home again.
Officer McCoy was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and Oklahoma National Guard. He had served with the Oklahoma Department of Corrections for seven years. He is survived by his wife and two children.
