    The Oklahoma Medical Examiner says a woman who died after a stand-off with Lawton police last week died of a self-inflicted gun shot wound.
    That shooting happened last Thursday at a home in the 64-hundred block of NW Oak.
    The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says it was not known if 30-year-old Lauren Haskins died of a bullet from her gun or from an officer's, because at least one officer fired his gun.
    Police were initially dispatched to the home to the check the welfare of a woman.
    When they arrived they reported the woman was suicidal and attempted to negotiate with her.
    Officers say during those attempts, Haskins pulled out a gun.
