Muskogee, OK – Police on Friday released body-camera video of a fatal officer-involved shooting outside a wedding. Police received a call about 3:45 p.m. on Jan. 16 reporting a domestic disturbance at the Old Agency Baptist Church in the 1800 block of N 24th, police Cpl. Mike Mahan said.

Pastor Andre Jones called 911 and said an armed man was threatening to kill a woman who was attending a wedding. “He’s here with a gun,” Jones said on the 911 call. “I need a police officer because I got to stop this. I got a whole bunch of people here and I don’t need nobody hurt.”
