The Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office has released the identity of the shooter in the Friday fatal shooting south of Sallisaw that left one man dead.
Nicole Jordan, 32, is being held with no bond on second-degree murder charges at the Sequoyah County jail, according to Sequoyah County Chief Deputy Charles House.
The victim, whose name has not officially been released at this time, was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS officials, according to Sequoyah County Undersheriff Greg Cox, who was on the scene Friday at a residence off Old Dump Road south of Sallisaw where the shooting occurred.
Cox said a call came in to Sequoyah County 911 and was dispatched to deputies.
“They made entry into the residence and they located a white male subject laying on the floor,” Cox explained. “They were not able to get a pulse. They started CPR, then EMS arrived and took over the CPR and then later pronounced him dead.”
Cox said the alleged weapon, a handgun, was recovered at the scene. He also said the victim had a prior history with law enforcement, and it is believed that the victim and suspect had a child together. Cox did say the Drug Task Force had been to the scene, but there were no sign of drugs at the residence.
Sequoyah County Chief Deputy Charles House said the Sequoyah County sheriff’s office has been called out to that residence on numerous domestic calls in the past.
“We have had to go out there before,” House said.
He also said that while Jordan was listed as having a Poteau address, she had been living at the residence where the incident happened.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the case. They report the case is open and ongoing.
