Joshua Woods, 36, of Muskogee was shot and killed on Aug. 24, 2020 in his house, according to a report by District Attorney Orvil Loge.
Woods and his wife were arguing, and his wife reported that he was on Klonopin and steroids and was aggressive.
Woods’ step-son yelled at Woods to “get the fuck off her,” and when he did, Woods approached him, calling him a “little faggot” and grabbing him. When he did, the step-son fired a pistol he had retrieved from his room earlier in the argument for protection. He fired three shots, and Woods collapsed after the third.
“I find (the step-son) lawfully defended himself,” Loge said, “and decline to file criminal charges.”
