Nikky Joe Green

Trooper Nikky Green was shot and killed after he stopped to check on a vehicle parked on the side of the road which had its trunk and hood open.

Trooper Green informed his dispatcher at about 0700 that he was out with a possible disabled vehicle on the north side of Devol, about five miles north of the Texas state line. During the stop, Trooper Green discovered a suspect had been cooking Methamphetamine. When he attempted to arrest the suspect, a struggle ensued and Trooper Green lost control of his weapon. The suspect shot and killed Trooper Green before fleeing the scene.

When the Highway Patrol was unable to make radio contact with Trooper Green, a Cotton County Sheriff's deputy went to investigate and found Trooper Green alongside a rural county road about a mile from U.S. 70. The suspect was apprehended two days after the murder and was eventually sentenced to death.

Trooper Green had served with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol for 6 years, and was assigned to Troop G. He is survived by his wife, three daughters, and a foster child.

Nik, another year has passed since you left this world to be with your Lord and Savior. I know you are glorified in the after life with family, friends, and your fellow officers that preceded you. Unfortunately, Malone is still appealing for his pathetic life, feeling no remorse for the pain and hurt his has caused everyone who knew and loved you. Hopefully the US Court of Appeals will agree with his sentencing and do to him what should have been done years ago. Missing you Brother. Rest easy and continue to watch over Linda, your daughters, your family, and your brother in blue.
