Tulsa County deputies went to a house to serve a civil pickup order earlier in the morning. The deputies were acting on a mental health pickup order and a judge would have signed it so that officers could take Joshua to a mental health facility. [1]

Joshua left the house and went to the Super Stop convenience store armed with two knives and that police received at least two 911 calls about him. [1]

Deputies and an a Tulsa Police Department officer shot Joshua as he tried to enter the store because there were people inside. [1] He was armed with two knives when he was shot.

He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.



The deputies and the police officer involved in the shooting have been put on administrative leave. [1]


Joshua's death sparked a protest on a city street that prompted dozens of officers in riot gear to monitor the situation.
