DURANT, Okla. -- A love triangle in Bryan County turns deadly. It happened Friday night in the 800 block of N. 10th Street in Durant. Police say a woman had some sort of involvement with two men, one of which she was living with. When the two men confronted each other, a fight broke out. One of the men began punching the other, that's when the man that lived with the woman, pulled a pistol from behind his back and shot the man.

Police are saying the shooting was an act of self defense. Names have not been released. The case is still under investigation.

    You spiked this one, and it will come back to haunt you someday. It wasn't about a love triangle but drug trafficking of meth from McKinney TX to Calera OK. It was murder 1. I've been told by a respected person, who should know, that the DA turned Mullinix loose, illegally, about nine hours before he killed Tristan York. Shame on you for letting this get by.

    A Bryan County Sherriff deputy told my little brother and I that we could be charged with attempted murder or assault with a deadly weapon for throwing a rock at our neighbor...not 5 rocks...just 1. So, how can one person shoot someone 5 times and not even get so much as a slap on the wrist?..Oh wait...I know "self defense"...homicide not murder. Yeah, I had to look that one up--HOMICIDE: the killing of one person by another--MURDER: the UNLAWFUL killing of one person by another. HA HA...I can't stop laughing. We love our loop-holes don't we. Frankly I'd by surprised if the entire police report on this is more than just a few pages long...As far as the person goes that started this whole thing...she should "Make My Day" and have some stuff sewn shut. This is a horrible situation, not only was this life wasted, but someone lost a friend, son, grandson, and a father. OVER WHAT? R.I.P--Faron Dean Wright--

      Over What? 1. He witnessed drug trafficking between McKinney Texas and Calera Oklahoma, 2. The murder of Tristan York, mostly done by Bobby Don Mullinix. The media didn't tell you about the drug trafficking, and the FBI was not involved, either. Ask why. The important question: who let Bobby Don out of jail? Maybe the DA? He killed York about nine hours after he was released. There is no statute of limitation for murder 1. It ain't over 'til it's over!

    i have talked to a cop before and the make my day law acording to him that the other person had to have some type of wepon..... so this cant be that. the dpd has been the worst police i have seen in all my day. they are to worried about other things going on.I hope that man gets life. if he dont that just goes to show you what type of world we are living in.

    self defense? r u serious? tres is panzy, he was getten his butt kicked so he pulled a gun out from behind his back(pre-meditated!) self defense isn't shooting someone in tha CHEST 5 DANG times! y not shoot them n tha foot or leg, just something 2 get away from that person until police arrive? because that wasnt his intent his, intent was 2 kill, if not then he wouldnt have shot him n tha chest where all tha vital organs are..hello! Tres u cheated that baby of a great father! r.i.p. farron! we love you, ur jokes and laughter will be missed everyday! i pray that god will bring justice to tha court!to tha family:i pray god will send u angels 2 comfort u as u grieve and 2 be there for future events when tha pain of farron's absence is 2 overwhelming.i pray that farron's little angel will understand "self-defense"is tha only thing that kept him from being there for all her birthdays, her wedding and her own children's birth! edited by Staff
