Edmond police release names of teen, officers involved in police shooting

EDMOND — Officials on Wednesday released the name of the teen killed in a Monday police shooting 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 notified that Lewis was spotted by several witnesses running west on Lariat Circle and stripping his clothes off.

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 one officer deployed a Taser, with no effect.

An officer fired his gun multiple times at Lewis, fatally striking the boy. Officials have not disclosed which officer fired the Taser or which officer fired the gun.

Officers and paramedics rendered first aid to Lewis, who was taken to OU Medical Center and later 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 and reviewing video from officers at the scene of the shooting.
