Stillwater PD: Deadly shooting at bail bonds office was unjustified, shooter arrested
STILLWATER, Okla. (KTUL) —
Stillwater police have arrested a woman they say shot and killed a man at a bail bonds office Wednesday.
Police say Chasity Carey, who works at Signature Bail Bonds near 7th and Main, called 911 shortly before noon saying she had just shot a man. Brandon James Williams, 38, was found dead at the scene.
Carey told police that she called Williams, who had previously been charged with three counts of second-degree burglary and possession of marijuana in Payne County, into her office to take him into custody and revoke his bond. But she said a fight broke out between her and Williams, so she went and got a gun from her desk and shot Williams in self-defense, according to police.
Police say witness statements and video evidence contradict Carey's story. Investigators believe the shooting was not justified, according to police.
Carey was arrested at her home in Drumright around 6:30 p.m. and booked into jail on a murder complaint.
