Nine people were said to be at the barbecue during the time of the shooting, according to Oxford Police Chief Kirk Ives.No one was hurt during the shooting incident.According to the complaint filed on July 1, Marcus is being charged for firing a handgun at the direction of Purkey and Joseph during an argument about whether M.

He also threatened a Sumner County Sheriff deputy by saying he was going to “headbutt the f— out of you.”In the complaint affidavit, Oxford police officer Shawn Luck was dispatched to report of shots fired near Jeremy Witte’s residents at 203 E. Olive in Oxford. A woman called the police to report someone tried to force his way into the house but the Witte shut and locked the door.Another call came in saying a shirtless man was walking down the street with a gun firing it. Lux responded and apprehended Peters who was walking without a shirt on and was obviously intoxicated, the complaint said.Lux detained him in the back of the patrol car and preceded to 221 E.

He was transferred to Sheriff Deputy Corley’s custody where he made the threat.Lux proceeded to interview Joseph Peters, who stated he was having a family barbecue when his brother Marcus became upset. In the complaint affidavit, J. Peters said Marcus had too much to drink and tried to drive away in his pickup but other family members would not let him.Marcus allegedly walked away while the family tried to remove a tire from his vehicle. Joseph left to look for Marcus then got a call from his girlfriend Purkey who stated Marcus had returned and was shooting a handgun. He returned and Marcus shot at him but he was able to get the hand gun from him and give it to his mother Connie Greenwood.Lux recovered the handgun from Greenwood. Purkey provided a written statement that said Marcus had been drinking and tried to leave so she took the tire off his truck. Marcus shot at her then Joe tackled him. Marcus shot again and they fought before the police officers showed up. A witness said she watched Marcus shoot at her sister which scared her and she screamed and went inside.According to Ives, Peters was on probation for various crimes in Cowley County and was not supposed to be in Sumner County according to the stipulations of the probation agreement.Ives said he estimated Marcus had been living with his brother for about two weeks before Sunday’s shooting incident.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
