Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris is recusing himself from the case involving last week's shootings outside the Tulsa County Courthouse.
District Attorney Brian Kuester, who covers Wagoner, Adair, Cherokee and Sequoyah counties, told Tulsa's Channel 8 Wednesday that the case will be handled by his office.
Kuester was assigned the case by the state Attorney General in accordance with state law.
Twenty-three-year-old Andrew Dennehy is accused of firing shots in the plaza outside the courthouse on March seventh. A Tulsa County sheriff's deputy and two others were hurt in the shootout. Dennehy was also wounded and remains in the hospital.
Dennehy has not yet been charged in the case, but Kuester says he expects charges to be filed either late this week or early next week.
