Longtime Muskogee Police Officer Ron Yates was found justified in shooting Andrew Kana to death at a Muskogee restaurant on Nov. 12.

District Attorney Orvil Loge said the evidence made it clear Sgt. Yates had no choice but to fire his service weapon three times into Kana’s torso, killing him.

Officer Lincoln Anderson said Yates did what he had to do:

While we never want any situation to end with the loss of a life, Sgt. Yates and the other officers involved handled themselves with professionalism in a rapidly escalating incident.
