CATOOSA, Oklahoma – News 9

New information released by Catoosa Police about the man accused of opening fire outside the Hard Rock Casino says David Temple fired more than 30 rounds with an AR-15. Police are thankful that no one was hit.

Records also show Temple was arrested by Arkansas State Police last Friday, for a string of charges, including having drugs. He was released from jail Saturday morning, then arrested hours later in Catoosa.

Records show Temple faces charges of reckless driving, speeding, having a fake ID, and possession of drugs out of Arkansas. Catoosa Police say Temple showed up in the Hard Rock Casino parking lot Saturday morning, got out of his car, pulled out an AR-15, and started shooting at the golf course, and vehicles in the parking lot.

Officers say Tulsa Police Officers were already looking for Temple because he had been shooting at cars on the interstate. Police say Temple was driving a Tesla, so he stopped at a charging station at the casino, then started shooting. Officers say Temple surrendered to them and casino security.

Police say they found two more guns, a lot of ammo, cocaine, other drugs, and cash in Temple’s car. They say they believe Temple was under the influence when they arrested him.

Temple is in the Rogers County jail for shooting with intent to kill, drugs, reckless conduct with a gun, and other charges.
