Malaski Hill, Marcus Antowon Jr., and Christopher Harris are all charged with multiple felonies in a gunfire incident that happened on the night of April 28, according to papers filed with the cases.

The three are charged with use of a vehicle in the discharge of a firearm, eluding or attempting to elude a police officer, unlawful possession of controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and resisting an officer. In addition, Dolan is charged with possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony.

According to an affidavit filed with the cases, the suspects allegedly fired around 20 rounds from a .223 rifle from a 2004 Dodge Neon at Michelle Anderson. When police tried to do a traffic stop on the vehicle, they say the vehicle attempted to elude stop at a “high rate of speed.” The vehicle then crashed into an electrical box and the suspects allegedly exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Police also found a Canid 9mm 20 feet from the vehicle and they say Harris was in possession of marijuana, 50 Xanax pills and a substance they believe to be methamphetamine.

Each man is currently in the Muskogee County Jail on $100,000 bond.
