Police identify homicide victim, 1 arrested

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton Police Department has identified the victim in Wednesday night’s deadly shooting.

Police were called to 2212 NW Pollard Avenue at 8:10 p.m. Wednesday on a shots fired call. A second call came in saying a man was lying in the street, bleeding. When police arrived, they found 39-year-old Jeremy Jacobs bleeding from a gunshot to the neck. EMS was called in and they tried to revive Jacobs, but it was too late.

Witnesses in the area told police there were two people, a male and a female, arguing with Jacobs before he was shot. Employees at a nearby apartment complex saw the two juvenile suspects and managed to catch one of them.  The female was able to get away and kept running.

The male was taken to the police station for questioning, and police learned who the female counterpart may be. They went to her home and waited until she showed up. The female suspect and her parents, along with quite a few other witnesses, were all questioned at the police station.

After the interviews and looking at evidence, the female was placed into custody and taken to the Comanche County Juvenile Detention Center on a complaint of homicide. The male was not arrested at that time. Because the two suspects are juveniles, their names have not been released. Formal charges have not been filed.

Police are continuing to investigate and process evidence. They were able to release the crime scene on pollard around 9:00 a.m. Thursday. Jacobs’s body was sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Oklahoma City.

Friends and neighbors were reluctant to go on camera, but they said Jacobs was popular among the kids in the area. One person said he was actually repairing a child's bike before right before he was killed.
