Muldrow, OK - A Sequoyah County deputy serving an arrest warrant fatally shot a suspect after being stabbed (video below.)
Muldrow Police Chief George Lawson said that the deputy, who was not identified, went to the residence to serve warrants for felony forgery and failure to register as a sex offender.
Muldrow Police Assistant Police Lt. Brad Roberts and Patrolman Jerry Brooks went with the deputy to assist.
During the search for Phillip Joel Wayne Trammell, he suddenly appeared from a huge pile of clothing in what appeared to be a spare bedroom, and charged at the officer while stabbing with a 4-inch knife.
The deputy was stabbed, and Trammell was shot three times.
Muldrow Police Assistant Police Chief Tim Keith transported the injured deputy to a local hospital.
The deputy is recovering from his injuries.
Trammell was pronounced dead after his sudden-onset of acute lead poisoning.
"He has made several threats about law-enforcement, not going back to jail and he is also done things to her to try and provoke her to harm him or possibly kill him."
The warrant for Trammell had been issued on May 5 for a second degree forgery offense that occurred in February.
In 2007, he was convicted of rape by instrumentation in Marshal, Texas.
The shooting was captured on body-cam video.
The Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation is conducting the investigation.
