Fourth arrested in Haskell shooting


One of two at-large suspects in a late July Haskell shooting has been arrested and was charged Thursday in Muskogee County District Court.

Jaysea Williams, 18, of Tulsa, was charged with first-degree burglary, conjoint robbery and two counts of conspiracy for her alleged participation in a robbery and attempted home invasion in Haskell on July 30.

She is one of five people who allegedly attacked one home in the early hours of the morning, then attempted to invade another.

Of the five, four have been arrested: Jobe Terronez, 19, of Fort Gibson; Jakeyvious Key, 18, of Muskogee; and Colton Edwards, 18, of Muskogee; and Williams. The fifth person, Phillip Lamont Jones Jr., 18, of Taft, remains at large. All face similar charges. Edwards also faces a charge of shooting with intent to kill.

During the robbery, the five attackers entered the residence of a 16-year-old girl by kicking in the door, stealing money and a television, and running over the girl’s leg during their escape, according to an affidavit filed with the case.

When the five invaded another home, one of the residents began firing back, states another affidavit written by Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Jeremy Yerton.

“[Diontre] Lang appeared from the back of the residence and began to return fire at [Colton] Edwards. Edwards and four others fled from the front of the house to a black vehicle parked across from the residence on West Hickory Street,” Yerton writes. “Lang continued to fire at the suspects and vehicle as they fled to the car and began driving from the scene.”

In the ensuing shootout between the invaders and the residents, Terronez, Edwards, Jones and Williams were shot, while Key was injured by glass, said Haskell Police Chief Michael Keene.

Muskogee County sheriff’s deputies later located a car registered to Terronez on Old Taft Road, with bullet holes, a blown-out back tire and blood in the driver’s seat and back seat, Yerton wrote.

The five were later located at Saint Francis Hospital Muskogee, according to the affidavit. Edwards, Jones and Williams were hospitalized for their wounds.

Williams remains in custody at the Muskogee County/City Detention Facility on $200,000 bond. Her next court appearance is a preliminary hearing alongside Terronez, Key, and Edwards on Oct. 28.
