tulsaTwo police officers in Tulsa Oklahoma are now under arrest for a crime that has shocked the community.  Sergeant Dave Walker says that the two officers are Shannon Kepler, 54, and his wife, Gina Kepler, 48.    According to Walker, the two are connected to the shooting death of 19-year old Jeremy Lake, who is African American.

The crime is difficult for a community that also happens to be the scene of the Tulsa race riots, when thousands of African American families were terrorized and had their property destroyed nearly a century ago.  Racial tensions remain high in Tulsa because reparations have not been paid to those who lost their property and the community is but a shadow of what it once was.

According to Newson6.com, Lake was with Kepler’s daughter and was confronted by the girl’s father.  He was driving a black 2007 Suburban, which the daughter identified as belonging to her dad.  According to police, the daughter went over to speak to her father, who demanded to know why she was in the area she was visiting.  After the girl walked away, the father got out of the car and confronted Lake.

Lake told the father that he was his daughter’s boyfriend, and that’s when he shot the teen two or three times.  He also shot at his daughter, but missed her.  Afterward, he drove off.
