Kellen Gittens

Johnny Toomer
Kellen Leslie Gittens, 37, and Johnny Damond Toomer, 37, both of Muskogee, are charged with four felonies stemming from a May 9 incident that left a house on 11th Street riddled with bullets.

Police allege that Gittens was in an argument with his neighbor on 11th Street over parking in a driveway. They say Gittens and Toomer were driving around in Toomer’s 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis discussing shooting and killing the neighbor. Police say the pair pulled up in front of the neighbor’s house, at which time Gittens got out of the vehicle and shot 30 rounds at the house, then got back in the car, which sped away and got into a wreck at 24th and Shawnee.

Gittens is charged with shooting with intent to kill and possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony. He was formerly convicted of two DUIs, felony menacing and robbery.

Toomer is charged with shooting with intent to kill and leaving the scene of an accident involving damage.

Warrants have been issued for both men.
