CATOOSA -- Authorities are investigating a shooting in Catoosa on Tuesday in which police said one coworker shot another.

Both the Rogers County Sheriff's Office and Catoosa Police are on scene near East Marshall and 165 East Avenue. The shooting was reported at about 1 p.m.

When police arrived, a man was found dead on the ground in the area, and the alleged shooter was still there.

The man who was killed has been identified as Cody Thurman, 26.

Police believe the shooter is Steven Northcutt. Northcutt was treated and released from a hospital in Claremore.

Police say Northcutt has retained a lawyer and has not spoken with investigators yet.

“Suspect went back in the building once my officers arrived," said Catoosa Police Chief Kevin McKim. "Started giving commands, he came out with his hands up and he laid the weapon down inside the building and he did what we asked him to do."

Police said the men worked for a trucking company. Officers said the two men were involved in a confrontation, but they weren't sure what it was about.
