Henry Jackson, a teenager who shot two agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has been killed, according to police.

Those agents are expected to be all right. Police say they returned fire, shooting and killing Jackson. This all happened Thursday night.

​Jackson had previous convictions on drug and firearm charges, and was wanted in what CBS calls a "two-day crime spree" — he's believed to have shot a woman Wednesday.

Both victims from those shootings are expected to be OK. It is also possible that Jackson was involved in previous murders, according to KXII. (Via KOTV)

Jackson was reportedly 18 or 19 years old. Police are investigating the shootings from this week, and authorities say they have information indicating he could be involved in the murder of a man in another Oklahoma county.
