A 20-year-old husband and soon-to-be father was taken off life support following an accidental shooting in east Tulsa last week, and community donors have raised more than $50,000 to support his pregnant widow.

Aiden Fincher was critically injured just before 1 p.m. on May 29 near East 21st Street and South 99th East Avenue when a bullet came through his apartment wall, striking him in his head.

Girlfriend and boyfriend Tia Norwood and Corry Lykes were reportedly having an argument next door at the time in which Norwood attempted to leave the apartment with Lykes’ gun. The two were struggling over the weapon when it went off, an affidavit states.

Fincher was hospitalized in critical condition but was taken off life support on June 1, police said.

Lykes told police he went next door after he learned his neighbor was shot, and he said he held Fincher’s hand until emergency responders arrived. Norwood told police she only learned someone had been shot when she returned to the apartment.

Both were jailed on complaints of first-degree manslaughter during the commission of a misdemeanor and reckless conduct with a firearm and have since been charged in Tulsa County District Court.

Norwood was released June 3 on a $25,000 bond, and Lykes remains in the Tulsa County jail in lieu of the same bail.

A GoFundMe page was organized with a goal of $55,000 to support Fincher’s wife, Macrina, and their unborn child. As of Monday afternoon, community members had donated more than $50,000.

Those who wish to donate to the page may do so at bit.ly/FincherFamily.
