Accidental Shooter to Enter 'Not Guilty' Plea

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ The Lawton man charged for shooting his friend's eye out after a marijuana session has waived his preliminary hearing.

A formal arraignment has been scheduled for Tyrel Whately on Jan. 9 where his lawyer said he will enter a plea of "not guilty."

Back in October, police say Whatley was pretending his friend, Mark Camacho Ramos, was a zombie after the two had smoked marijuana. We're told Whatley pointed a gun at him as a joke when the gun went off. Whatley claims he panicked, destroyed the drugs and buried the gun in the backyard. Ramos later lost his eye as a result.
