Muskogee Police Release Video of Intense Officer-Involved Shooting
MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma – Muskogee police released video and additional details of their deadly Feb. 28 shootout with two Nebraska teens.
Police shot and killed a 17-year-old girl, and a 17-year-old boy took his own life.
The teens went on the run from Nebraska, traveling through several states, stealing cars and running out of gas.
The teens were in possession of guns, including an AK-47 that they didn’t use during the shootout with Muskogee police.
Police said an officer tried to pull over a stolen vehicle, and that led to a short chase.
The car chase ended with a crash, but the two suspects jumped out and started running away on foot.
The girl shot at officers, who returned fire, according to police.
The boy kept running but was eventually found in a heavily wooded area with the help of a drone. Police said the boy took his life with a single gunshot as officers approached.
“I think the worst part of it was seeing that officers were begging and imploring with young people to drop their weapons, and they actually fired on the officers,” Muskogee Mayor Marlon Coleman told NewsChannel 8 after he saw the police video.
