The Blackwell Police Department was involved in a shooting Monday night on Doolin Avenue that ended with no fatalities.

On May 8 at approximately 9:45 p.m., officers responded to a report of a male subject walking in the area of 29th Street and Doolin Avenue who was trying to flag down vehicles, according to Police Chief Cory Ingram.

An officer made contact with the subject on the west side of the Oklahoma Investment Casting Co. building.

The subject then began shooting at the officer.

The officer returned fire, and the subject fled to a trailer house at the nearby livestock auction facility.

Ingram said the male barricaded himself inside the residence.

After a four-hour standoff, the subject was removed from the residence and identified as Mike Cook.

Cook was transported to Stillwater Medical Center - Blackwell for treatment for a gunshot wound to his foot.

Ingram said Cook was later transported to OU Medical Center for further treatment of his wound.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is handling the investigation.

The Kay County Sheriff's Office, Ponca City Police Department, Kaw Nation Emergency Management and Blackwell Fire Department assisted with the incident, Ingram said.
