Skyler Buckner

Skyler Buckner, 26, of Muskogee has been charged in Muskogee County District Court with first-degree murder and eight counts of shooting with intent to kill in the May 29 mass shooting in Taft, according to documents filed with the case.

The case alleges that witnesses saw Buckner start the shooting that resulted in the death of Sharika Bowler and injuries to eight others at the Memorial Day celebration in Taft on that date.

Buckner is being held without bond in the Muskogee County Jail. Other suspects in the shooting may still be arrested and charged.
