Authorities Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting in Muskogee

Posted: Updated:

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.

Emergency paramedics lifeflighted both the individual that was shot and the man with that was stabbed. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
