The trooper ordered them to get to safety as water was rising rapidly, according to OHP Capt. Paul Timmons.
"As they were exiting the water, coming towards the troopers, a confrontation occurred," Timmons said. "One of the troopers was actually assaulted, and in defense of himself, he fired."
The other man from the stranded vehicle was taken to the Okmulgee County Jail. Timmons did not know what charges the man may face.
Dead is Nehemiah Blessed Fischer, 35, and the other man, Brandon Anthony Fischer, 42, was arrested.
