Family wants killer to come forward
OKLAHOMA CITY — A family is asking for the man who killed their loved one to turn himself in after a shooting at the Country Oaks Apartments on N.W. 150th St. in Oklahoma City.
Police said 19-year-old Jonathan Brass died after being shot Thursday evening.
Bragg’s friend, 10-year-old Johnathan Daniels, was wounded and police said he now faces fail time.
Police said it was a drug deal turned deadly but the Braggs’ family said they can’t believe that.
Tonya Braggs said her son, Jonathan, loved to play basketball and planned to go to college in the fall.
He worked at Crest since graduating high school.
She said hearing he was involved in a drug deal gone wrong is unbelievable.
“My heart dropped. I couldn’t believe it,” Braggs said.
Braggs and his friend Daniels were at the Country Oaks Apartments when police said they met another man to make the illegal drug deal.
Both Braggs and Daniels were shot.
Braggs died, Daniels was rushed to the hospital.
“I just couldn’t believe it,” Braggs’ aunt, Angela Bowen, said.
Daniels now faces a charge of robbery and felony murder since investigators said his friend was killed while a felony crime was committed.
Braggs’ mother said her son was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“My son didn’t do drugs, didn’t sell drugs,” she said. “He went to work every day. He graduated. He got a scholarship for basketball to go to college but he didn’t because he chose to work.”
Whatever the circumstances, she said she wants her son’s killer to turn himself in to police in hopes of keeping more tragic scenes off the streets.
Investigators said they have pinpointed the third person involved in the shooting.
His name is not being released yet because an arrest warrant has not been issued.
