Love triangle ends with death in Duncan

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN, Okla_A love triangle in Duncan ended with one man dead and another in police custody. Duncan police say 21 year old Bradley Lewis shot 19 year old Devon Edwards to death Wednesday night at his home on North Cypress. They say Edwards went to the house to see his ex-girlfriend but refused to leave.  Lewis, the man his former girlfriend is now dating, and Edwards got into an argument. That's when police say things quickly spiraled out of control.

Police could not comment on the details of how the confrontation turned violent. But, they do say that there is a history of problems between Edwards and Lewis that revolve around the woman involved. One of Lewis's friends, who did not want to be identified, told me the tension between the two had been brewing for weeks.

Duncan police say an unassuming house was the backdrop for a fatal love triangle, where a fight between Bradley Lewis and Devon Edwards spiraled out of control. A friend of Lewis said the tension a had reached boiling point

"The reason that he has been coming to the house is because he had been trying to get Bradley's girlfriend to get back with him. Bradley has been trying to get him to go away for a couple of weeks now, threatening him because he kept getting closer and closer and closer."

Both Duncan police and neighbors said the scene after the shooting was chaotic. The house was filled with police, emergency responders and both the families of Edwards and Lewis. One witness said the families had to be separated because of rising tensions.

"They had to keep folks away. When we got the call we had an individual in the house with a firearm. He had told dispatch that he didn't have a gun. That it was laying in the house. Responding police heard shots fired, someone down, they reacted appropriately."

Detective Donny Foraker said Edwards was taken to a hospital in Oklahoma City, where he died and Lewis was taken into custody. He said when it comes to situations like this one, where tension mounts over time, you can never predict the outcome.

"The problem is you have someone that does want to act appropriately and someone that does not want to act appropriately, legally and in a proper manner. You have folks that lets their rage rule them for a few minutes and that's where the problem is."

Detective Foraker said right now, they are still investigating what happened and it is not clear whether or not Lewis will be charged.

We'll keep you updated.
