Authorities Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting in Muskogee
Authorities in Muskogee are working the scene of a reported shooting Wednesday evening.
Few details are available at this time, but officials confirmed that the incident is an officer-involved shooting. It happened after 8 p.m. near 30th and Boston.
Officials with the Muskogee Police Department told KTUL that the situation began after an altercation in a truck. Three men were inside the vehicle when one of them that was reportedly suicidal took out a knife and ended up stabbing one of the individuals.
All three men exited the vehicle and officers arrived to the area a short time later. The unidentified individual continued to wield the knife after repeated instructions to drop the weapon, which lead an officer to fire his gun after feeling threatened.
