Charges expected to be filed soon in recent shooting death

LAWTON, Okla._The man accused in the weekend shooting death of a fellow Fort Sill soldier remains behind bars and still has not been formally charged.

Stephon Threat was jailed Saturday on a first-degree manslaughter complaint. Court officials anticipate formal charges to be filed soon. He's also accused of possessing a firearm while intoxicated.

Officers say Threat was playing with a shotgun in an apartment near Northwest 52nd Street and Rogers Lane in the early morning hours on Saturday when the gun went off, and the victim, 20-year-old Trevor Hargrave was shot.

Police say Threat told them he and another friend were trying to drive Hargrave to a hospital when police stopped their car. The victim died at the scene.

Hargrave was from Virginia and was stationed at Fort Sill as a member of the 75th Fires Brigade.
