The Muskogee Police Department just sent out this release:

On today’s date at approximately 0735am officers were dispatched to 4700 block of Columbus in reference to shots fired. Dispatch advised that the reporting party stated a dark colored SUV left the area, and a blue car was still parked in the street.

The first officer on scene arrived and saw a subject standing in the road by the blue car with the driver’s side door open. The officer told the subject to step to the back of the car, as he approached the back of the car he threw a gun and took off running north. A foot pursuit ensued and the subject was taken into custody a few blocks away. He was later identified as Corey Rone and transported to the Muskogee Police Department. He is being charged with:

  • Shooting with intent to kill
  • Resisting arrest
  • Possession of a firearm AFCF (After former conviction of a felony)

The victim’s car received damage from multiple gunshots. There were several shell casing collected from the scene as well as a firearm. Officers received several conflicting statements on scene from witnesses, this appears to be an ongoing dispute between the victim, Matthew Spradlin and suspect Corey Rone. The investigation is ongoing.
