One dead, five hurt after mall shootout

Authorities searching for three, including two teens

The Muskogee Police Department and other agencies worked late into the night searching for three persons of interest following a deadly shootout Saturday.

Police said Daniel Jermaine Anderson, 20, Michael Mayberry, 16, and Anton Nelson, 17, were involved in the shooting at Arrowhead Mall.

Police were called to Arrowhead Mall at 4:11 p.m. when multiple shots were fired.

Jarrod Reed, 17, of Muskogee died after he was shot in the torso, said Police Chief Rex Eskridge. Five others were injured. Not all who were injured were identified when the Phoenix went to press.

Police believe Reed was an intended target in the shooting.

The U.S. Marshals Service, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the FBI, sheriff’s offices from Muskogee and Wagoner counties, Wagoner and Fort Gibson city police and Creek Nation Lighthorse officers assisted Muskogee police.

Reed’s body has been taken to the state Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy, said Deputy Chief Johnny Teehee.

Pico Reed, 18, of Muskogee remained hospitalized at Muskogee Regional Medical Center on Saturday night, police said.

Madison McCord, 13, who had been staying with her aunt, Tonya Pierce of Muskogee, was shot in the leg. She was flown to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa.

Pierce’s daughter, who was with McCord at the mall, said three girls were waiting for a family member to pick them up when the shooting occurred.

One told Pierce “a bunch of black men started shooting.”

Pierce said Madison ended up with a nicked artery in her leg.

Pierce was crying as she tried to get into the locked-down mall to hunt for another relative. Police told her they would help locate the relative.

A man from McAlester also was shot while shopping at the mall, Eskridge said.

Eskridge said most of those shot were innocent bystanders — shoppers.

There were numerous shell casings on the mall floor in the area of Hibbett Sports and toward the recruiting office in the mall, Teehee said.
