A man has turned himself in to Muskogee police after a fatal shooting Tuesday night.
Officers responded around 9:30 p.m. to the 4400 block of West Okmulgee and found a man was shot and unresponsive. He was transported to nearby Saint Francis Hospital and was pronounced dead.
A police news release states that during the investigation at the scene, a man arrived at the Muskogee Police Department front desk "stating that he needed to turn himself in for the shooting."
The man told officers he is a member of a Native American tribe; the FBI and Creek Nation were notified to take over the investigation. None of the individuals involved have been identified.
