Watch: Okla. Deputy Shoots Sex Offender that Stabbed Him

10-24-17 Arkansas:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office has released bodycam video of a deputy shooting a stabbing suspect.

The deputy, Christian Good, was serving two warrants for the arrest of convicted sex offender, Phillip Trammell, on Friday.

As Good searched a room, Trammell stabbed him twice with a knife. That's when Good shot and killed him.

Sheriff Larry Lane said in a press conference Tuesday this is not what an officer wants to happen, and it can be a heavy burden to bear.

Good was taken to the hospital soon after the shooting. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Oklahoma State Police are investigating the incident.

Watch the video. It does contain strong content that some viewers may find disturbing.
