On Nov. 30, the Atoka County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation with a shooting death in Atoka.
When OSBI special agents arrived at the scene, Douglas Arp, 55, had died from his injuries. His son Wyatt Arp, 20, admitted to investigators he had dropped the gun, causing the weapon to fire a round striking his father.
Monday morning, an OSBI special agent tracked down Wyatt Arp outside an Atoka County hospital. There, the agent questioned him more about the shooting. After the interview, the agent arrested Wyatt Arp on a complaint of murder in the first degree. He was booked into the Atoka County jail.
