LPD speaks after man found dead on porch Wednesday morning

Crime Stoppers of Southwest Oklahoma issues 'First 48' for Wednesday murder

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - The Lawton Police Department is looking for answers after finding a man shot dead on his porch Wednesday morning.

Just after 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, police arrived at a home near southwest 45th and Park, where they found Darian Harris shot to death on his porch.

“We don’t know if there was something that took place inside the home before or if it all stemmed from outside. Right now, that’s all part of the investigation,” said Sergeant Timothy Jenkins with the Lawton Police Department.

Jenkins said detectives are not only working to find out what happened, but also to learn more about Harris and the people he spent time with.

“We are still trying to talk to family members or close friends, people who know the victim. Trying to get some whereabouts from the people who he hung out with, maybe the places he hung out at. Just trying to get some information about him so we can get some leads somewhere else,” Jenkins said.

Anybody with any information about Harris or the crime itself is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers.

“You can always remain anonymous, 355-INFO. Or you can download the app and submit a tip there. If you feel comfortable, you can call the police station and ask to speak to the detective handling the case here at the 4500 block of Park and give them the information you have, that way we have something to go off of,” Jenkins said.

Crime Stoppers has issued a first 48 reward for this case. If you submit information that leads to an arrest within the first 48 hours, the potential rewards are increased to $5,000.
