Oklahoma DA: Fatal shooting of armed suspect justified
(Information from: KHBS-TV, http://www.4029tv.com)
FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) – A district attorney in an eastern Oklahoma has decided that the deadly shooting of an armed suspect inside a McDonald’s was justified.
KHBS-TV reports that that Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane and Chief Deputy Charles House shot and killed James William Huskey in Sallisaw on July 5.
Police say they tracked Huskey to the McDonald’s after a search that began after shots were fired in Fort Smith, Arkansas. First Assistant District Attorney N. Jackson Thorp says Lane shot at Huskey after struggling with the suspect who pulled out a gun and tried to shoot Lane, who initially tried to disarm Huskey.
Thorp says a review of video of the shooting for the investigation shows the sheriff and chief deputy were justified in their actions and shouldn’t face charges.
