Shannon and Gina Kepler

Two married Tulsa police officers are being held without bond in the shooting death of their daughter's boyfriend.

Shannon Kepler, 54, and his wife, Gina Kepler, 48, are in the Tulsa County jail accused of first degree murder and accessory after the fact.

Shannon Kepler worked in the police academy, while Gina Kepler was a patrol officer. Both are suspended from the police department with pay.

Shannon and Gina Kepler

The bizarre tragedy unfolded Tuesday night when Shannon Kepler got into a heated argument with his 18-year-old daughter, Lisa Kepler, on a residential street. Lisa's boyfriend of one week, Jeremey Lake, 19, stepped up to introduce himself to Lisa's dad.

Shannon Kepler, a veteran officer of 24 years, drew a gun and shot Lake 3 times in the chest and neck before fleeing the scene in his SUV. Lake was pronounced dead at the scene. Keppler later turned himself in to Tulsa police.

Police say the Keplers couldn't have children of their own so they adopted Lisa and her sister at an early age. Both girls were diagnosed with attachment disorder which made it difficult for them to bond with the Keplers.

Shannon and Gina Kepler

The Keplers' friends say they spent thousands of dollars trying to get help for Lisa's emotional and behavioral problems, including putting her in juvenile homes but she often ran away.

When Lisa turned 18, a frustrated Shannon Kepler drove her to a downtown Tulsa homeless shelter and left her there. He told friends he was trying to teach her a lesson. But Mrs. Kepler worried about her daughter and cried every night.

While at the shelter, Lisa met Jeremey, a mild mannered biracial boy who volunteered at the shelter. He invited her to move in with him and his aunt nearby. Lisa professed her love for Jeremey on her Facebook page after dating him for one week.

Lisa Kepler

According to published reports, the couple was walking near his aunt's home when Shannon and Gina Kepler drove by in an SUV. Shannon Kepler parked near the couple and exchanged words with Lisa outside the truck. Lisa ran away when the shooting started. Her father reportedly fired at the fleeing girl but missed.

In an interview with Tulsa World, Lisa Kepler said her parents kicked her out of the house due to “poor life decisions.” She said she hopes her dad "rots in prison."

    For some reason that is ALWAYS what I look for in police wrongdoing. If they still getting paid or not. I was taught by an editor many moons ago that is usually the precursor to what the eventual outcome of the case very well may be. Not always. But normally this means their fellow officers are "investigating" :sarcasm:

    He shot the boy for being black while dating (YT)

    She was only with the other family a week so she might bonded might not have.

    He shot at the girl for being damaged goods and disobeying him and being a general pain... they didn't have to have had relations or nuthin but to the racists hanging out together is enough..

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Many questions remain after Baltimore City police say a wanted criminal shot himself while in their custody. The suspect’s family is speaking out.

    Rochelle Ritchie spoke with the family of Tyree Woodson.

    It’s a very bizarre case that has many wondering how could a man considered so violent by police be able to conceal a high caliber weapon and be transported to jail without it being detected. The incident is under investigation as the family of the suspect cry foul and city officials call for a thorough review.

    How could it happen? It’s a question city leaders are asking after Baltimore City police say Tyree Woodson shot himself in the restroom of the southwestern district police station after being brought in on warrants for attempted murder and weapons violations.

    “Things don’t seem quite right here,” said Councilman Carl Stokes. “This person could have a gun, a high caliber gun, that could be used against other officers and then he allegedly kills himself.”

    The mother of Woodson spoke to WJZ, saying she believes there is more to the story.

    “My son didn’t shoot himself,” his mother, Verdessa McDougald, said. “I know he didn’t shoot himself.”

    Baltimore City police call Woodson a violent criminal and gang member who was brought to the station on open warrants. He was placed in a holding cell for several hours before being escorted to use the restroom.

    “The individual went into one of the stalls at which time a round was fired from within the stall,” said Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez.

    Police say Woodson used a weapon he had concealed to shoot himself.

    “If he is in their custody and they allow him to go to the bathroom and they didn’t check him, they need to be held accountable,” said his sister, Sandra McDougald.

    There are no metal detectors at the station but there are standard procedures in place when transporting a suspect.

    “It is imperative for the officers’ safety and for the safety of the individual that we pat them down and make sure they don’t have any weapons,” Rodriguez said.

    Woodson’s family acknowledges he had been in trouble with the law before but say if he was such a violent person, the first step would be searching him.

    “When you locked up, they frisk so they did not frisk him if they say he had a gun and shot himself,” Verdessa McDougald said.

    Police say they are looking into whether arresting officers acted accordingly when taking Woodson into custody.

    No officers were injured during the shooting.

    I just watched an 8 minute compilation video. I need those boys to find something safe to do, because randomly sitting on someone, asking if they want to buy a gun, pretending to fart on someone's head, etc. is not funny :no: Anyone of any race would react violently in many of those scenarios, and black boys have to go through way too much to even joke about stuff like that.
