Muskogee Police Cpl. Michael Mahan has released the names and more details in yesterday’s stabbing and shooting:

The name of the suspect is Angel Cerda, Hispanic male, unknown address. Mr. Cerda is currently at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, OK. He is suffering from gunshot wounds (unknown how many) and self inflicted cut injuries to his wrists and throat. He is in stable condition.

The individual who was stabbed by Mr. Cerda is Ceasar Pena. At this time I do not have an exact date of birth, but he is described as a Hispanic male in his mid twenties. He is suffering from a substantial laceration to the back of his neck. I do not have an exact condition on Mr. Pena, but his wounds are not considered life threatening. I do not know what the relationship between Pena and Cerda is at this time.

During the incident, there were three shots fired by one officer and a Taser deployment by another officer. The exact sequence of events is still being investigated. Officer Chancey McMillin was the officer who fired his weapon. The other officers on scene were Officer Nick Ford and K-9 Officer Jason Steele. All three officers are currently on routine administrative leave.
