Tulsa District Attorney Tim Harris recused himself from a case involving a shooting at the downtown Tulsa courthouse plaza.
A DA office official says Harris recused the office because employees were witnesses to the shooting and it was a conflict of interest. The Attorney General has assigned the case to a Wagoner County DA. The trial will still be held in Tulsa County.
Andrew Dennehy is accused of opening fire at the plaza on March 7th. A deputy and bystander were shot; Dennehy was also shot and is still hospitalized.
No charges have been filed yet, prosecutors expect to get findings from TPD’s investigation into the shooting soon.
