No charges due in shooting

A man who shot a 17-year-old 10 times will not be charged with a crime, Okmulgee County Sheriff Eddy Rice said.

Jesus Bustos, 38, shot Justin Burgess after an altercation at Bustos’ residence in Schulter on June 12.

“He’s going to live,” Rice said.

Rice said Burgess went to Bustos’ once and left after he was asked. He later returned with a knife, Rice said.

Bustos will not be charged because of the Stand Your Ground law. It declares a person “has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force” if force is necessary to prevent death, great bodily harm or the commission of a forcible felony.
