VINITA, Okla. – Two law enforcement officers were involved in the fatal shooting of a Craig County man, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Monday.
The officers shot Guy Walker, of rural Craig County, after he pulled a bow and arrow and waved the weapon in a threatening manner, according to an OSBI press release.
Law enforcement arrived at Walker’s residence at 27310 S. 4400 Road after receiving an emergency call reporting a large chunk of concrete on the railroad tracks on 4400 Road. Officers traced tractor tracks from the railroad to Walker’s residence, the release states.
Walker is making a “ruckus and going in and out of his house,” the release states.
Walker pulls out a bow and arrow and refuses to put down the weapon prompting law enforcement officers to fire at Walker, killing him.
Walker was charged in 2011 with assault and battery on a police officer in Craig County District Court in Vinita. The charge was dismissed in 2013, records show. In 2016, Walker was charged with two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, threatening act of violence, and trespassing upon railroad property.
In 2016 the Court determined Walker was not competent to stand trial and was sent to a treatment facility. Court records show if Walker plead guilty in an alternative court and if treatment was successful charges would be dismissed.
The OSBI reported no other injuries.
