TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Prosecutors in Tulsa say a 20-year-old man has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder for a shooting that killed two and injured two others.
The Tulsa World reports that Kaleb Young has also been charged with two counts of shooting with intent to kill.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Young allegedly confessed that he shot the four people at an apartment complex on Monday because they were standing near his ex-girlfriend.
Investigators say Young told them he thought the people standing next to this ex-girlfriend had shot up his home a month earlier.
Young remains in the Tulsa County jail on a bond of more than $1 million. Jail records didn’t list an attorney for Young.
Killed in the shooting were 23-year-old Marco Celestine and 26-year-old Joshua Smith.
