With an armed suspect charging them, shouting “I’m ready to die, kill me,” and “I want to die today,” eight Muskogee police officers fired their weapons at Danny Brogdon on March 5, killing him with 28 bullet wounds.

According to District Attorney Orvil Loge, all eight of the officers tried to de-escalate the situation, where Brogdon had already stabbed one woman and choked her to unconsciousness with his belt and did not back down when officers tased him, deployed a bean bag round and a flash bang round. Thirty one bullets were fired, 28 struck Brogdon.

According to Loge, Brogdon had that day committed the crimes of assault and battery with a deadly weapon on Debra Smith, Kimberly Robbins and Jennifer Dodd, and eight counts of assault on a police officer.

Their actions were legally justified, Loge said.
