Just after 4 p.m. on Oct. 31, the Pushmataha County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance with a shooting near the intersection of County Road 4330 and Hwy 147.

At the end of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation’s case, a report will be sent to the district attorney’s office to determine whether charges should be filed.
