OSBI Aids in Langston University Shooting
Langston University Police requested OSBI assistance in a shooting that occurred Thursday evening (10/14/10) at the University. Just after 7 o’clock last night two shots were fired into a crowd of people involved in a physical altercation. One innocent bystander was hit in his leg by one of the bullets. Jordan Hunter (dob 4-12-89) was treated and released from the hospital for that wound. Another student was kicked in the head during the altercation. He was transported in serious condition to an Oklahoma City area hospital. His name is not available at this time.
Just after 10 o’clock last night, a University Police officer was driving in the area of Hiwassee and Old Highway 33 when he spotted two men walking along the road. The officer made contact with the two men and found two handguns in a backpack one man was carrying. The officer arrested Michael Vaughn (dob 9-4-84) for possession of a firearm after a previous felony conviction. During the arrest, the man’s brother, Chesley Ronald Griffin (dob 6-29-88), ran from the area. He is still at large.
Investigators have determined these two men were at the center of the University altercation and shooting. In fact, the two had driven from Fort Worth, Texas, to visit their brother who is a student at Langston University. That young man, Neiman Johnson (dob 7-2-91), is missing and wanted as a person of interest. He is likely driving a 4-door, maroon Toyota Corolla with a Texas license plate.
Chesley Griffin has possibly been picked up by family members and is headed to Texas. A BOLO has been issued to officers in both Oklahoma and Texas for these two individuals. Griffin is to be considered armed and dangerous.
