At 7:08 p.m. Friday evening, Pittsburg County Deputies responded to the town of Pittsburg for complaints of ATV's driving recklessly.

When Deputies arrived they observed one ATV operating illegally and attempted to make a traffic stop.

When the suspect refused to stop, deputies initiated a pursuit.

The pursuit ended when the suspect crashed the ATV and still refused to obey commands by the Deputies.

The suspect brandished a firearm, which forced the Deputies to use deadly force.

19 year-old Sayven Rowland was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has taken over this case.

We will update as more information becomes available.
