OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — A man who barricaded himself inside a home is dead.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) said deputies were serving an eviction notice near West Hefner Road and North Council Road Monday afternoon.

While serving the eviction notice, deputies tended to an elderly woman with Parkinson's disease.

Deputies said a man inside the home started pouring gasoline on the floor while officials were helping the elderly woman.

An official ran towards the man to stop him, taking him to the ground.

Deputies said the man was able to get a hand free and spark the lighter that he was holding, setting the floor on fire.

Deputies were able to get themselves and the elderly woman out of the house.

However, OCSO said the man died.

Officials believe the man and woman were in some sort of relationship.

Deputies are still investigating what happened.
