Man questioned about Facebook post in Okmulgee shooting case


A little girl shot by a stray bullet during a fireworks show went back to the hospital on Monday with new injuries.

FOX23 News has been following this story since the girl was hurt on Thursday night when police say someone shot a gun in the air.

The family tells FOX23 News doctors say they found a fractured rib from the bullet's impact and there is swelling on her shoulder where the bullet went through her body.

The shooter hasn't been caught and police are tracking down leads in Okmulgee.

When a tipster saw a Facebook post that said "the 4th of July is the only time you can shoot a firearm in the city limits and not get in trouble,” they called police.

Investigators said that person admitted to making the post but denied shooting a gun during the fireworks show.

The fireworks show was the first for 3-year-old Adrian Vincent.

"She was really enjoying the fireworks. She was like, 'Oh look at the fireworks,'" said Josh Vincent.

Her father said Adrian started screaming and the mother called for help.

"I had no idea what hit her. I started screaming to stop the fireworks," said Amanda Vincent.

Police later confirmed there was a bullet lodged in Adrian's shoulder.

"I thought I was going to lose her," said Vincent.

Since FOX23 News sat down with the Vincent family from Bixby, on Friday, her parents say Adrian has swelling, a fractured rib and doctors felt it was safer to keep the bullet in her shoulder.

On Sunday, she celebrated her 4th birthday.

Back in Okmulgee police are following up on leads.

"It will be an uphill battle," said Okmulgee Police Chief Joe Prentice.

With the bullet lodged in the girl, investigators will not be able to do a ballistics match with bullets recovered.
Prentice said someone called about a bullet in the parking lot of Truck Works. FOX23 News found it's about four blocks northwest of First National Bank & Trust where Adrian was hit by the bullet.

"The bullet that was found is consistent with the bullet that was found in the little girl in size, based on what the doctor told us," said Prentice.

The family tells FOX23 News while Adrian was in the ER on Monday they measured the bullet and was at least a .40 caliber.

"I lost it. It was bad. I was right there but I couldn't protect her," said Josh Vincent.
He wished he could have protected his daughter from a person who shot their gun in the air during a fireworks show.
I want them to see what their actions did, for being stupid and shooting, and anyone should know that," said Vincent.

Investigators are following up with other names brought up in the interview with the person who made the Facebook post.

If you have any information, please call the Okmulgee Police Department at 918-756-3511.

  • Republican plans for tax reform could be less sweeping than originally envisioned by the White House and GOP leaders in Congress, as a provision in a House GOP budget blueprint would require any tax bill to be ‘budget neutral,’ which would force lawmakers to offset any tax cuts with revenue increases that could be difficult in some cases to gain approval. Deep in the fine print of the budget resolution for next year, the Republican plan allows for a tax reform bill under budget reconciliation, “if such measure would not increase the deficit for the total of fiscal years 2018 through 2027.” In other words, you can’t just cut taxes – which technically deprive the federal treasury of revenue, and therefore increase the budget deficit – you have to find revenue to pay for those tax cuts. And Republicans on the House Budget Committee were actively trumpeting that message. It’s time for deficit-neutral #taxreform, and our budget makes that possible. pic.twitter.com/naed7nv7o9 — House Budget GOP (@housebudgetGOP) July 19, 2017 On Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan was touting tax reform during a trip to a New Balance factory in Massachusetts. “First and foremost, we’re going to cut your taxes,” the Speaker said. But when a tax plan is deficit neutral – a cut for one person means that revenue must be found somewhere else to offset that reduction – in other words, some other tax increase, mainly one would assume by taking away deductions in the tax code. And many veterans of Capitol Hill say that’s not going to be easy. “I spent much of 2011-16 negotiating tax reform proposals in the Senate,” said Brian Reidl, a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, who used to work for Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH). “Revenue-neutral tax reform will make health care look easy,” Riedl said in a post on Twitter. Key Republicans have made clear that they want to put together a proposal that dramatically simplifies the current tax system. “So 96% of the people can do their tax return on a single postcard size,” said House Budget Committee Chair Rep. Diane Black (R-TN). To do that, you would lower tax rates, and then most likely eliminate or reduce tax deductions – and that’s where things get tricky. Revenue neutral tax reform is hard. pic.twitter.com/B5ohufu90y — John Arnold (@JohnArnoldFndtn) July 20, 2017 Do you get rid of the deduction for mortgage insurance? Lots of people talk about that, but it always goes nowhere. What about the deduction for state and local taxes? That has bipartisan opposition in and around big cities on the East Coast. The tax break on employer provided health care benefits? That went nowhere fast in the negotiations over the GOP bill to overhaul the Obama health law. End or restrict the business interest deduction? Hard to imagine. Deficit neutral tax reform – it sounds wonky. But it’s a pretty important development that may rein in the scope of a GOP tax plan.
  • Tulsa investigators are looking for two men who ambushed a female pizza delivery driver early Saturday morning. The incident happened around 12:40 a.m, near 23rd and Jackson. Police say the victim had just finished delivering her pizza.  She was walking to her vehicle, when the suspects hit her with an unknown object. “She said she fell to the ground and a suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash from her purse,” police said. Both suspects then fled the scene on foot.   The victim wasn’t able to get a good look at the suspects.   Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.   
  • Multiple children are lucky to be okay, after reportedly getting locked inside a vehicle on Friday.   EMSA tells us, witnesses at the scene spotted the children.   “The latest call, at the Aldi’s grocery store at 82nd street and South Olympia Avenue, included three children – reported to be one infant and two toddlers - locked in a car,” EMSA said.  “A caller called 911 and waited at the scene to wave down emergency responders. The patients were assessed at the scene and were not transported to a hospital.” No word on who drove the children to the store or why they were left inside.   As of 8 p.m. Friday, EMSA crews had responded to eight suspected heat-related calls.  Saturday could be even hotter, so please stay safe.
  • Saturday will be perfect for staying close to your air conditioner or making friends with somebody who owns a pool. National Weather Service Meteorologist Chuck Hodges says we have another scorcher ahead of us. “Another hot one for Saturday,” Hodges said.  “Sunny skies and it looks like the high temperature will be around 102, 103 degrees.” There is an Excessive Heat Warning in effect for Tulsa and surrounding counties until 8 p.m. NWS reports we’ll see more high temperatures on Sunday.  The sun will come back out and the high should be near 100 degrees.   There is also a small chance for storms on Sunday, during the afternoon hours.  
  • O.J. Simpson plans to return to Florida when he’s released from prison in Nevada, but where are the rest of the players from the Trial of the Century? The Washington Post says the cast of characters includes prosecutor Marcia Clark, who now writes murder mysteries. Judge Lance Ito is now retired. Simpson’s lead defense attorney Johnnie Cochran died in 2005. Prosecutor Christopher Darden now has his own law firm as a defense and civil litigation attorney. But the paper says famed defense lawyer F. Lee Bailey has probably fared the worst. The now 83-year-old was disbarred and filed for bankruptcy after a string of scandals and runs a small consulting business above a hair salon in Maine. You can read more about the story here.
