Oklahoma police officers cleared in fatal shooting

Steven Rains - July 27, 2019 8:58 am

Two Oklahoma City police sergeants have been cleared in the fatal shooting of a man along Interstate 35.

Capt. Bo Mathews said Friday that prosecutors found Sgts. Wesley Parsons and Dustin Fulton were justified in opening fireJune 10 on 24-year-old Vincense Dewayne Williams Jr.

In body-worn camera video Fulton is seen getting out of his police vehicle, armed with a rifle and shouting commands to Williams. Williams is seen standing upright, then bends down, where police said he picked up a handgun he had dropped.

Fulton can be seen firing at least four shots, then saying, “Shots fired. He grabbed the gun. Shots fired.”

Mathews said it hasn’t been determined which officer fired the fatal shot and that both are back on duty after being on paid leave.
