The Henryetta doctor who admitted shooting a man is not expected to face criminal charges.

Prosecutors say Doctor Wesley Parkhurst[pictured] shot Gary Wayne Britt in self-defense.

Henryetta Police say Doctor Parkhurst shot Britt twice Tuesday morning after Britt rammed the doctor's car then approached him outside City Hall.

Henryetta's police chief says he's asking the district attorney to file charges of assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence against Britt, who remains hospitalized in Tulsa in serious condition.
