No gun found on or near victim after fatal shooting, police officers testify in Kepler murder trial

The teenager fatally shot by former Tulsa Police Officer Shannon Kepler in 2014 didn’t have a gun on or near him when officers began investigating the shooting, several law enforcement witnesses told a jury Friday.

Kepler, 57, is on trial for the fourth time on a first-degree murder charge in the Aug. 5, 2014, death of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake, who briefly dated Kepler’s estranged daughter, Lisa, after meeting her about a week before he died. Kepler’s previous trials on the same charge ended with mistrials due to hung juries in November, February and July.

Kepler has contended that he shot Lake twice in self-defense because he saw him carrying a gun, but a series of officers involved in the case against him each told jurors they didn’t recover a firearm at the crime scene, which was in the area of Lake’s aunt’s home in the 200 block of North Maybelle Avenue.

Man arrested on murder charge after fatal stabbing in Franklin

Kettering police Chief Chip Protsman is asking residents to wait for answers about Sunday night’s police-involved fatal shooting.

Police officer Jonathon McCoy shot and killed Jason M. Hoops, 33, of Fairborn after a traffic stop of his gray Ford van Sunday evening near Craig Drive and East Bataan Drive.

Protsman didn’t respond to questions about why Hoops’ vehicle was stopped, what happened in the three minutes from the stop to the gunfire, why McCoy said Hoops’ gun was in a pocket after the shooting or how many shots were fired.

Elvik re-trial in 1995 Carson City fatal shooting set

The re-trial of Peter Quinn Elvik on murder charges has been tentatively set for Oct. 10 in Carson District Court.

Elvik’s 1996 conviction in the shooting death of William Gibson was overturned in federal court because Elvik was 14 at the time of the shooting. A three-judge panel at the 9th Circuit Court ruled that, because of Elvik’s age, he was legally presumed not to understand his actions were wrong. The panel headed by U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro ruled jurors should have been instructed that they must specifically find that Elvik understood the nature of his actions and, without that instruction, it was much easier for the panel to convict him.

Elvik served 20 years in prison before he was released on parole. He is now living in California.

Carson District Attorney Jason Woodbury said after the 9th Circuit ruling that he has to

Neighbors shocked by fatal overnight shooting at Sioux Fall Apartment

UPDATE:

Neighbors tell KSFY News they’re shocked about an overnight shooting at the Eagles Nest apartments off South Louise Avenue and 53rd Street in Sioux Falls.

“It’s a nice part of town and they’re nice buildings,” said neighbor Ryan Mullinix, who’s lived in the Eagles Nest Apartments for several years. “So it’s sad to see something like this happen up here.”

Sioux Falls Police have not provided any further detail, but said 27-year-old Jeremy Alan Eischens of Sioux Falls was arrested on 1st and 2nd degree manslaughter charges, as well as a slew of drug-related charged.
