A Muskogee teen charged as a youthful offender with four counts of shooting with intent to kill won his bid Tuesday for bond reduction. Special District Judge Robin Adair set a $40,000 bond for Kelvin Lee Riggins, 17.

Riggins was arrested Sept. 10, after he allegedly fired shots at four people who came to Riggins’ home following an altercation between Riggins and his girlfriend.

Jay Cook, who is representing Riggins, said his client was defending himself after people in two cars pulled up in front of Riggins’ home at 304 S. Ninth St. and started shooting at him. Riggins, who was shot once in the leg, was the only person injured during the alleged shootout.

The only other person charged as a result of the shooting was Brian Chaplin, 37. He was charged with accessory to the shooting and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony.

Riggins is scheduled to appear Oct. 18 for a preliminary hearing. Chaplin is scheduled to appear Tuesday for a sounding docket.
