USA: Mass Shooting In Oklahoma At Choctaw High School Football Game During The 3rd Quarter That Stemmed From An Argument. 16yo Boy Killed, 3 Injured. Police Need Help Identifying Suspect.


Police need your help tracking the shooting suspect down for the murder of the 16yo male student.
👇 back to my regular spiel. 👇
Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved, and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals THEY'RE ALLOWING to terrorize you with guns said they wanted to keep you safe from guns. The anti-gun prosecutors are not even prosecuting gun crimes. But god forbid you kill an intruder, robber or rapist in self-defense in your home or on your private property, these same Commie Democrat district attorneys or prosecutors will charge you with murder and have you locked up for years in prison.

In Choctaw, Oklahoma, four people were shot at a high school football game. One victim, who is a student, went to the hospital to be treated for a shot to her thigh. Details surrounding the three others are still unclear.

In previous live coverage of the game on local channel Skordle, shots can be heard and players from Del-City High and the local high school in Choctaw can be seen running to the sidelines.

Mark Rodgers, a reporter covering the game for The Sports Animal, told KOCO News that the shots sounded when there were five minutes left in the third quarter.

Choctaw Police Chief Kelly Marshall spoke to reporters about the incident afterward. Marshall said that about 35 officers responded to the incident and that the one victim was a female high school student with a wound to her thigh. She was treated and is now out of the hospital.

No suspects have been announced in the investigation. Police described the suspect as a "black male with a gray hoodie." Marshall said that the department is hoping to have more details on the suspect by midday Saturday. The shooter took off after the incident occurred.

Del City Police Chief Loyd Berger, also spoke to reporters alongside Marshall.

One of the officers from the nearby town of Del City was involved in the incident and fired his weapon. It is unclear what was going on at the time that he did.

"I know one of our officers was involved and discharged his weapon,” Berger told reporters. “As far as at who or if he hit anything, I really don’t know.”

Superintendents David Redi and Rick Cobb of Choctaw-Nicoma Park Schools and Mid-Del City Schools released a statement about the shooting for families who were affected and the general student body of the school districts.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by tonight’s incident. Both districts are working jointly with the police presence from Choctaw, Del City, and Oklahoma County in an ongoing investigation," the statement said. "The police will provide further details as they become available.”

CHOCTAW, Oklahoma - An investigation is underway for the suspect accused of shooting and killing a 16-year-old at the Choctaw-Mid-Del football game Friday night.

A fight broke out between at least two people, and shots were fired. Choctaw Police confirm three people were shot: one person was killed, another was transported to the hospital and a female was shot in the leg.

News 9 learned Monday that two girls hopped a fence at the stadium after hearing the gunfire: one broke both of her wrists and the other broke an ankle.

There are currently no suspects in custody in relation to the shooting, but police said they have been working around the clock to find answers.

"I want our community members, our citizens to know that the work didn't stop after paramedics left. It was really almost just beginning," Chief Kelly Marshall with the Choctaw Police Department said.

Police ask anybody with video or information on Friday night's shooting to contact them.


The Investigations

The Choctaw Police Department is handling the investigation into the shooting that killed the 16-year-old Midwest City student. Officers said it's believed the incident started as an argument between two males on the visitor’s side of the field.

In a press conference on Friday, the possible male suspect was described wearing red sweatpants and a gray sweatshirt.

The Uvalde Foundation, a kids nonprofit organization, is offering a reward for anyone who may have info regarding the shooting.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office said they have opened an investigation into the incident where an off-duty Del City officer shot a 42-year-old man in the chest.

Sheriff Tommie Johnson with OCSO said "the Del City officer did not shoot the 16-year-old... Our investigation shows the Del City officer did shoot a 42-year-old in the chest... The officer perceived some sort of threat, but it is important to stress we are still very early on in the investigation and comment further on what the officer perceived."

Two officers were working off-duty at the game when the separate shootings occurred. Both officers have been placed on paid administrative leave in relation to the officer-involved shooting incident, according to Berger. The other officer did not fire any gunshots, but was placed on leave to "decompress and also be ready to interview with the sheriff's office and cooperate fully," Berger said.

Johnson said a link has been set up to submit videos and evidence from the incident. The link to submit can be accessed by clicking here.

Moving Forward

Choctaw has postponed their upcoming football game, originally scheduled for Friday, Sept. 1.

Mid-Del Public Schools has also postponed all games between Aug. 28 and Sept. 2. The district moved to implement new security measures this year for their home football games in an effort to keep students, their families and other school personnel safe.

Those measures include fans walking through a new weapon detection system before entering stadiums. Fans will not be able to re-enter the stadium if they leave.

Middle and high school students are required to wear an ID to the game. Middle and elementary school students must be with a guardian to enter the game.

No bags are allowed unless it is a clear plastic tote. Firearms, weapons and explosives are prohibited from Mid-Del Public School campuses.

CHOCTAW, Okla. (KOKH) — An unannounced visitor at a local high school's football practice lead to a lockdown and police response Tuesday afternoon.

According to a message from the Choctaw-Nicoma Park Public Schools superintendent that was sent to parents, guardians, and staff, a person "not associated" with the district showed up to football practice asking to see a student.

A coach saw what he thought was a gun in the person's waistband and called the police. The high school then locked down the facility.

"We always keep our students safety as our top priority," Superintendent David Reid said in his notification to parents.

Choctaw Police, working off a detailed description from Choctaw High School coaches, tracked down the suspect, Latrell Mensah, and took him into custody in the Nicoma Park Elementary School parking lot.

Police said a juvenile girl was with him in the car. After searching her, police found a gun in girl's waistband.

Superintendent David Reid called the coaches the "real heroes" of the incident.

"CHS football coaches were the real heroes of today’s events," Superintendent Reid said in a statement to FOX 25. "Several coaches remained outside the locker room greeting students as they arrived for practice which is a normal routine. As an unfamiliar person approached the locker room, a coach intervened and got the person diverted, called 911, and stayed on the phone providing details to police until the person was apprehended. We are all grateful these coaches placed themselves in harm’s way in order to protect the students."

"CNP Schools teach the GOLD Standard, and these coaches displayed this and more in a very intense situation," Superintendent Reid said in the statement.

The full message sent to parents, guardians and staff can be read below:
In the spirit of open communication, we are bringing your attention to an incident that occurred at CHS today. A person not associated with the district showed up at football practice asking to see a student. One of the coaches noticed what he thought was a gun in this person's belt. The coach immediately contacted the police and locked down the facility. The police apprehended this individual and have him in custody. Choctaw PD is conducting an investigation.

We always keep our students safety as our top priority. Thank you for your support to Choctaw-Nicoma Park Schools

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A man with a gun showed up at Choctaws High School’s football practice last week. Thursday, police tell KFOR he was looking for a student.

Choctaw-Nicoma Park School District is now providing extra safety precautions for area schools following the incident last week.

According to police, football coaches were greeting players who were just getting to practice. That’s when Latrell Mensah, allegedly approached them and was armed. He is now facing additional charges on a $75,000 bond. Mensah is still in custody today.

“I’m also grateful that they greet him every day… Around July 4th, the male starts sending my son texts saying, he was going to be in a body bag. He was a dead man walking… My son was going to lose his life,” said Rayne Osborn, mother of victim.

Choctaw Police Chief Kelly Marshall tells us the whole situation stems from a girl.

“Something over the summer, I think, boiled over into the start of the school year. Mensah had told our victim, leave this girl alone. And apparently, he thought that he hadn’t. So, this is all over a girl,” Kelly Marshall, Choctaw Police Chief.

A different girl who was at the scene that day is now part of the investigation.

The gun was later found on the female juvenile the day of the incident in the parking lot at Choctaw elementary school. She’s facing charges, but police know Mensah was in possession of it at the High School originally.

“The coach spotted the weapon in his waistband once they left the school. Apparently, Mensah had given it to the juvenile to hold and the gun was found when she was searched,” said Marshall.

Rayne Osborn believes her son, Imani Jones, would have died that day if it weren’t for him seeing Mensah before he walked into practice, and if the coaches hadn’t stepped in as well.

“Imani was dating a girl and the girl was giving him rides back and forth to football training sessions… Mensah told the girl that she can’t give Imani free rides anymore and that Imani doesn’t need to get in the car. So around July 4th, Mensah starts sending my son texts saying he was going to be in a body bag. He was a dead man walking,” said Osborn.

Police say Mensah and the female juvenile he was with both have never been students at the school.

The school district tells KFOR, “We are grateful that our dedicated and selfless coaching staff was willing to put themselves in harm’s way to protect all our students. After any incident, we do a self-evaluation from a district perspective,” said David Reid, Superintendent.

Since the time of the incident there have been over 10 additional safety measures implemented at the school.
