No Charges to be Filed Against Officers Involved in Shooting

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Jasmuel Ray Robertson and Blaine County Deputy Sheriff Monty Goodwin acted in self-defense when shooting Jonathan Richard Daukei, age 38, on July 19, 2017, in Blaine County, announced Mark A. Yancey, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma.

 

Daukei, a member of the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes, was shot after a vehicle pursuit ended on tribal land. Daukei survived the shooting and is facing a state felony charge for attempting to elude officers. "After a thorough review of the FBI’s investigation, I have determined the officers in this case reasonably believed Trooper Robertson was at risk of death or great bodily harm given Mr. Daukei’s reckless operation of his vehicle," said Yancey.
