Adrian Foster

Adrian Lashean Foster, 20, of Muskogee has been charged in Muskogee County District Court with a felony count of assault and battery with a deadly weapon after an incident on Tuesday where shots were fired at a house in the 500 block of N. 17th St., according to documents filed with the case.

Around 6 p.m. Tuesday night, the victims at the house reported a gray SUV pulled up to the house and opened fire while several people were in the yard and the house.

Muskogee Police determined the suspect to be Foster.

Foster, who was 19 last year, was charged with numerous assault and gun-related felonies last year, including domestic assault and battery by strangulation, domestic assault and battery against a pregnant woman, threats to perform acts of violence, assault and battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm after delinquent adjudication and in 2017, when he was 17, shooting with intent to kill.

At least one of those cases was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction because Foster is a member of the Muscogee (Creek) tribe.
