Murder Suicide Investigation

An apparent murder-suicide is under investigation in Texoma.

Lawton police said Latesha Pettaway, 29, her boyfriend, Ricky McDaniel, 24 and her brother Shannon Taylor, were leaving the Thunderbird Lanes Bowling Alley at 44th and Cache Road around 11 p.m. Sunday, when an argument started.

Police believe McDaniel shot both of them before driving away to his mother's home. There they said he killed himself. He was pronounced dead at a hospital in Oklahoma City, Monday afternoon.

Workers at the bowling alley said they asked the group to leave the bowling alley when they became disruptive. A few minutes later, they said Taylor came crawling back in with a gunshot wound asking for help. Police said Pettaway died at the scene. Taylor is hospitalized but expected to recover.

A fourth person was with the group at the time of the shooting but was not hurt. The shooting is still under investigation and police are working to learn all the details.
