Shooting of Joshua Barre in Tulsa: The Tulsa World archive

  • 0

Joshua Barre, 29, was shot by two sheriff’s deputies and one Tulsa police officer on June 9, 2017, as he tried to enter a convenience store at 46th Street North and Martin Luther King Boulevard carrying two knives.

Deputies had previously tried to serve Barre with a civil order for a mental health evaluation and had followed him to the store after receiving calls about him walking down the street before shots were fired.

Barre’s estate filed a federal lawsuit against the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office about events leading up to the shooting in 2018, in which they allege that Barre’s death was “eminently preventable.” The case is ongoing.
