SummaryOxley was acting suspiciously and was detained by police outside of his vehicle. As a second officer responded to assist, Oxley ran back to his vehicle and locked himself inside, police said. A struggle to remove Oxley from his vehicle turned into a violent confrontation for the officer’s weapon. The weapon discharged several times, striking the officer one time in the left leg. The second officer rushed to his partner’s aide, saw an opportunity to stop the struggle and fired his weapon, striking Oxley in the upper torso multiple times, police said.
