Muskogee police released excerpts of officer body camera footage and 911 recordings from a fatal officer-involved shooting earlier this week, both of which were part of a presentation detailing the timeline of interaction.
Police attempted to arrest Andrew Richard Kana, 36, of Ponca City, on outstanding warrants Monday, according to Muskogee Police Department media releases. Officers attempted to handcuff Kana in the I Don't Care Bar and Grill. Once the officers had handcuffed one of Kana’s hands, he refused to provide the other, then pulled out a handgun, according to a previous media release. Sergeant Ron Yates immediately fired his weapon, striking Kana in the chest. Kana died at the scene.
Kana’s warrants included a charge in Muskogee for alleged domestic assault by strangulation, and three nationwide extradition warrants from Ada County, Idaho – one for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, one for possessing a firearm after a felony conviction, and one for domestic assault in the presence of a child. He also had Oklahoma cases in Payne County.
