Law Officers involved in a courthouse plaza shooting incident are honored

Deputies who helped bring down a courthouse plaza shooter are honored for their ‘heroic’ actions. At a ceremony at the courthouse, Undersheriff Tim Albin read a description of the events outside the Tulsa County courthouse on March 7th. In responding to reports of a shooter on the plaza, Deputy David Fortenberry was wounded in both hands. He received a purple heart and medal of valor at the ceremony.

Also honored were Corporal Dennis Miller and Deputy Steven Culley, credited with firing the shots that brought down suspect Andrew Dennehy. Several other courthouse employees and a highway patrol trooper were also honored for their actions on that day.
