OKLAHOMA CITY - A woman told police she shot her husband inside their home out of self defense after he threatened her while holding a knife.
According to police, the call came in around 6 a.m. Wednesday.
“Police were called to a check welfare. This was at a residence at a trailer park,” said MSgt. Gary Knight with the OCPD.
Knight is referring to the Meridian Sooner mobile home park, near S.E. 48th and Sooner Rd.
When officers got to the scene, they found a man who had been shot to death inside his residence.
“We received a call at approximately 8 a.m. that there was an issue at this particular house. We are unaware of the details. We are working with police so we can figure out what is going on,” Eddie Morgan, the Regional Property Manager for Meridian Sooner, told News 4 on scene.
Investigators later identified the deceased man as 39-year-old Boyd Ray Quisenberry.
“He has trauma consistent with homicide,” Knight said.
Police said Quisenberry entered the mobile home Wednesday morning and armed himself with the knife.
He then reportedly threatened the woman inside the home, identified as Quisenberry's wife, Christina Maria Mason, 33.
That is when police said Mason grabbed a gun and shot Quisenberry, killing him.
Mason was interviewed by homicide detectives and released.
Online court records show she had a victim protective order against Quisenberry at the time he entered her home.
At the conclusion of the investigation, the case will be presented to the Oklahoma County DA’s Office at which time they will make the determination as to what charges, if any, are appropriate.
Neighbors said the couple often argued but they never witnessed anything physical.
Quisenberry had served time in prison for domestic assault and battery. He was currently on probation at the time of his death.
