Sheriff confirms one dead following argument at mobile home park near Oologah


  Local law officers are still working the scene of an early morning homicide at a mobile home park near Oologah.
  Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton confirmed the death of a male victim, found this morning by his neighbor at the Lake Country Mobile Home Park off of US169 and 380 Road in Oologah. 
  “Shortly after 3 a.m. this morning, we received a call from a man who lives in this trailer park, who’d pulled up to his residence and noticed a body laying in the yard next to his residence,” said Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton. “He called 911, and the dispatcher instructed him on performing first aid.
  “When we arrived on the scene shortly thereafter, the individual was deceased,” Sheriff Walton said. 
  According to Sheriff Walton, the male victim’s identity is known and will be released to the public once next of kin and family are notified. 
  “Through talking to people in the trailer park that some time around midnight, there was an argument heard with multiple voices, and several vehicles leaving after the argument,” Walton said. “Move forward three hours to 3 a.m. when the neighbor found the victim laying in the yard, and that gives us a lot of good information to use.”
  As of 10:30 a.m., Walton said no suspects are presently in custody, but the sheriff’s department is awaiting a warrant to search one of the trailer homes, and that deputies are “looking for some individuals” believed to have knowledge or be involved.
  As to the victim’s condition, Sheriff Walton said he had abrasions on his face, and a “serious” chest wound, believed to have been the means of his death.
  “This is a crime scene we’re still working, so I’m expecting us to know more as the day progresses,” Walton said. 
  Rogers County Sheriff’s Office was being assisted in its investigation by the Rogers County District Attorney’s Office.
  Additional details will be added to this story as they are made available.
