Lawton police have made a pair of arrests in connection with a pair of violent incidents including for connection to the death of a 28-year-old woman considered the city’s second homicide victim of 2020.
A 23-year-old Lawton man is in jail awaiting charges after he was arrested in connection with the death of Angel Conner, according to Sgt. Tim Jenkins, LPD information officer.
Conner was killed following a Saturday morning shooting at a southwest Lawton apartment complex.
Officers were called shortly before 2:30 a.m. to DistrictSIX10, 610 SW 52nd, on the report of a shooting. Jenkins said officers arrived to find Conner suffering from a gunshot wound. Details about what led up to the shooting have not been released.

Piper was killed following a stabbing incident shortly before 5:30 p.m. Friday. His death remains under investigation by LPD and the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
