Muskogee police just released the following:

On today’s date at approximately 11:45am officers responded to a shots fired call in the area of 24th and Okmulgee. When officers arrived on scene they learned that there was a disturbance inside the Pop and Go convenient store between two subjects. Those subject’s exited the store and a male subject fired multiple shot’s at the other subject in the road near the store. It is unclear at this time if that subject was struck by the bullets.

After firing the shots the male subject fled the scene on foot. The only description at this time is a black male approximately 6ft. tall wearing a white tank top.

A perimeter was immediately set up in the area and a K9 Officer and his partner were called to the scene to track the suspect.

This is still a very active scene and we are asking people to avoid the area of 24th and Okmulgee as well as several blocks to the east, west and south of that area.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available.


The suspect in the shooting has been identified as 23 year old Clayton Spencer black male 6ft. tall and approximately 160lbs.

The victim sustained a minor injury and their name is not being released at this time.

A weapon has been recovered a short distance from the scene
