Muskogee Police released the names of officers involved in a shooting Wednesday night. The suspect, Darnell Cox, survived his wounds.

Burleson and Bycroft will return to work Friday, a news release said. Jenkins, who fired his service weapon, will be on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of investigations into the shooting.
