Psychologist suggests incompetence for Tulsa Courthouse shooting suspect Andrew Dennehy

TULSA - The suspect accused of opening fire outside the Tulsa County Courthouse is not fit for trial, according to a mental health evaluator.

At the request of his counsel, Andrew Joseph Dennehy underwent psychological testing in April and May, the results of which were released last week.

Dr. Curtis Grundy, the psychologist assigned to assess Dennehy's mental health, ultimately recommended he be considered unfit to stand trial and instead be referred for further treatment.

Dennehy told Grundy he feared Freemasons and the Illuminati, in conjunction with Satan, were trying to harm he and his parents. "They work for [Satan]," Dennehy was quoted in official competency evaluation documents. 

Dennehy said he intended for police to kill him at the courthouse, so his parents would be left alone.

The documents reveal Dennehy, 24, had a history of hypertension and depression and may have heard voices and experienced hallucinations prior to the courthouse shooting.

Dennehy is charged with two counts of shooting with intent to kill. He is also charged with assault and battery of a deputy from a medical center incident.
