Second man charged with murder after fatal shooting in Gilcrease Hills

Second man charged with murder after fatal shooting in Gilcrease Hills



Osage County prosecutors have charged a second man in connection with a shooting early this year in northwest Tulsa.

Lawrence Mitchell, 24, is charged with first-degree murder and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction in connection with the fatal shooting of Kim Hayes, 26, on Jan. 5.

Hayes was shot multiple times in his home in Gilcrease Hills, which is in the Osage County portion of Tulsa, and later died at a hospital.

Mitchell, who has been in the Tulsa County jail since May on several other felonies, was the second man arrested in Tulsa’s second homicide of 2020.

Detectives previously arrested Charles Boaz, 27, a few days after Hayes’ death and spent months working to establish the identity of the second person at the scene.

Boaz is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Jan. 14 in Osage County District Court.
