Clayton Eugene Spencer

Clayton Eugene Spencer, 24, of Muskogee was sentenced to a total of 50 years in prison this week after he was convicted of two counts of shooting with intent to kill and possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony.

On June 22, 2021, Spencer fired at several people at 2401 W. Okmulgee, with one victim referenced as a witness in a case involving a relative of Spencer’s.

According to testimony at the trial, someone told Spencer there were children in the car, and he said “fuck them kids” back and continued shooting.

No one was killed, but one person was injured.

“This defendant was on probation for assaulting a detention officer when he decided to pull out a semi-automatic rifle and open fire on the two female victims in this case,” District Attorney Larry Edwards said. “There were multiple children at the scene. The defendant obviously has no regard for human life. I am thankful that he is off the streets.”

Spencer’s sentences will run concurrently, the longest of which is 15 years.
