A young Duncan man is dead and another young man sits in jail awaiting word if charges will be filed against him in the shooting that took place Wednesday night in a Cypress St. home.
Devin Edwards, 19, died Wednesday night from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest, after an alleged argument escalated at 1015 W. Cypress. Bradley Lewis, 21, is being held without an official charge while the investigation continues, said Det. Donny Foraker on Thursday.
Lewis can be held for 48 hours without charges. Foraker anticipates concluding his investigation today.
“We’re still chasing stuff down, reviewing phone records.”
Foraker said that Edwards was the ex-boyfriend of Katelyn Oakes, 19. Oakes and Lewis lived at the residence and were both there when Edwards allegedly showed up.
“It was just the three in the residence,” Foraker said. The gun used was a 9mm Ruger handgun. Foraker said that there were two calls made to city dispatch/911. Lewis did make one of the calls.
Oakes was initially taken into custody, for questioning, but was released the same night.
“We did not find any other mags. The young man (Lewis) after shooting, evidently, he put the gun on the couch and he took the magazine out and unchambered it, where there was no round in it,” Foraker said.
Edwards was mediflighted to Oklahoma City. It is not known if he died enroute or at the OKC hospital. The medical examiner had not provided a timeline to Foraker as of Thursday morning.
