MUSKOGEE, Okla. -- One person was killed in an officer-involved shooting in Muskogee on Monday.

The shooting was reported between 2 and 2:30 p.m. at I Don't Care Bar and Grill at 415 West Shawnee Street.

A Muskogee police spokesperson said officers were serving a warrant on Andrew Kana, who was sitting in the restaurant. 

Officers "attempted to place him in custody for the warrants, once one hand was placed into handcuffs, the suspect refused commands for his other hand, pulled a firearm and one officer fired at the suspect and struck him in the chest," spokesperson Lincoln Anderson said. 

Kana had four outstanding warrants totaling half a million dollars. One was in Muskogee County for domestic assault by strangulation, and the other three were nationwide extradition warrants out of Idaho for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm after felony conviction and domestic assault in the presence of a minor child.

Anderson said there were three officers present during the warrant service, and all three officers will be placed on administrative leave while an investigation is conducted.

The officers all were wearing body cameras that were recording, which MPD says will be released after those involved have been interviewed.

The restaurant is currently closed.
