Edmond police release names of teen shot, officers involved in Monday fatal shooting
EDMOND — Officials on Wednesday released the name of the teen killed in a police shooting Monday and identified the two officers involved in the shooting.
Just before 1:05 p.m. Monday, Edmond police were notified of a domestic disturbance after two girls came to a house and said they had been assaulted by a boy and needed help. The girlfriend of Isaiah Lewis, 17, told police that Lewis had “flipped out” and was acting strange after arriving at her house, police said.
Police were then notified that Lewis was spotted by several witnesses running west on Lariat Circle and stripping his clothes off. A witness followed Lewis as he ran into a wooded area near Abilene Avenue and Edmond Road.
Officers searching for Lewis spotted him hopping fences just before 2:05 p.m. Monday and began a foot chase.

Sgt. Milo Box and officer Denton Scherman were in an unmarked police vehicle when they spotted Lewis breaking into a home in the 500 block of Gray Fox Run and followed him as he went inside the home.
Officials said Lewis assaulted the officers inside the home and a Taser was deployed, with no effect.
An officer fired his gun multiple times at Lewis, fatally striking the boy.
Officers and paramedics rendered first aid to Lewis, who was taken to OU Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Box and Scherman have been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into the shooting. Neither officer was wearing a body-worn camera. Officials said the department is in the process of issuing body-worn cameras to officers later this year.
Police are currently in the process of locating a reviewing all video from officers at the scene of the shooting.
