OK: Man killed in Medicine Park bar shootout: "Charles Timothy Taylor, 52, was escorted by Park Tavern employees out of the bar, 196 E Lake Dr., about midnight because several patrons had complained about his behavior, Brown said. Taylor then pulled out a knife and tried to stab bar employees and other patrons. ... Taylor shot at the owner and at a small crowd that had gathered, and fired inside the bar .... The bar's owner returned fire, fatally shooting Taylor, Brown said. 'I can’t imagine any self-respecting DA that would charge the bar owner for ventilating the perp.'"
