OSBI Agents Assist with Homicide Investigation in Langston

At approximately 6:30 Saturday night (12/22/2012) the Langston Police Department received an emergency call regarding a shooting that took place in the 400 block of S. Oklahoma Street When officers arrived they found Michael DeWayne MIlton (12/15/1962) dead of an apparent gunshot wound. The Langston Police Department contacted OSBI for assistance in the homicide investigation.

Nearly a half dozen OSBI agents arrived on the scene and began processing the crime scene and conducting interviews of those involved. Still early in the investigation, it appears the victim was stealing a vehicle from a man’s front yard. That homeowner tried to stopped Milton from taking the car by reaching through the car’s window trying to take the key from the ignition. Milton continued driving the car from the home in a reckless manner with the car’s owner hanging from a side window. Another man who lived with the homeowner where the car was being stolen fired several rounds from a handgun at the car. Milton was struck with an unknown number of bullets and wrecked the vehicle approximately a block from the original crime scene. Milton died at the scene. The car’s owner was not injured.

No one was arrested for the homicide. The District Attorney will determine whether the shooting was justified.
