Oklahoma Self-Defense: Man reportedly shot in self-defense at north Tulsa apartment complex :: 02/06/2019

What was described as a drunken dispute escalated into a shooting Tuesday afternoon.

Eric Marshall reportedly was drunk and got into an argument with Kenneth Meeks while Meeks was helping another resident move into the Newton Manor apartment complex in the 3300 block of East Newton Street, police said in a news release. Marshall threatened Meeks, and Meeks got a pistol from his apartment, police said.

Marshall later appeared with a baseball bat, hit Meeks’ vehicle with it and threatened Meeks again, police said. Meeks then fired a shot into the air and warned Marshall to leave, but Marshall then ran at Meeks with the bat, and Meeks shot him in his right forearm with a grazing wound about 4 p.m., according to the news release.

Marshall was taken by ambulance to Oklahoma State University Medical Center in good condition.

Meeks reportedly left before officers arrived but later contacted police and returned to the scene, where he was arrested on a complaint of felony possession of a firearm.

Sgt. Tim Lewandowski said he did not expect charges against Meeks related to the shooting because it appeared that the shooting was justified. Upon Marshall’s release from the hospital, he likely will be arrested on a complaint of assault, according to the news release.
