Police say someone needs to come forward to help solve a double murder at a midtown Best Buy.

The intended target Scott Norman, 34, was ambushed and shot outside the store in the parking lot.


Inside the store, 58-year old Graydon Wesley Brown was shopping with his ten-year-old daughter when he was shot and killed by a stray bullet.


Investigators say this was a result of ongoing gang violence.


Brown is the third innocent victim killed in this gang feud and no one has been arrested.


On
July 10th, 2011, 27-year-old Kanisha Jackson just got off the phone with her mother. When she came out of her bedroom Kanisha was shot to death.

911 caller: “I see three shells on the floor, one in the wall, I see blood splattered on the wall. I need police now! Now! You all come out quick. Come out! Come out quick!”


"She was an innocent victim,” said Kanisha’s mother Sheila Jackson-Richardson. “I miss her everyday. She was my best friend."


Kanisha’s boyfriend, 28-year old Bryan Mitchell, was killed in what police believe is a revenge shooting that dates back to 2008. Certified gang member Tajaun “Hyphy” Davis and his friend Teonte Ray were killed on
July 9th, 2008.

"I feel like they are going to kill more. They feel like they are invisible and they have to right to take people's lives and they shouldn't have that right,” said Jackson-Richardson.


On Saturday, Norman was gunned down in a parking lot. Police also believe he was connected to Davis' and Ray's murders.


Now a father, Graydon Wesley Brown, called Wesley or Wes by his family, was shot to death as he and his daughter shopped for a birthday gift for the ten-year-old's mother.


“It feels like I am reliving that whole story again,” said Jackson-Richardson. "Chills just went through my body when I heard what they did to this man."


All of the murders happened the second week of July.


"He is a killer. He has no value for anyone's life. No ones life means anything to him. The way he has taken innocent lives. I think he needs to be told on,” said Jackson-Richardson.


Her mother said Kanisha wanted to be a model. She was a mother and also died just days before her daughter's sixth birthday. Mrs. Jackson-Richardson said she knows people witnessed her daughter's murder but aren't talking.


"I don't know how anyone can sleep at night I just don't know how they are able to sleep. Knowing what happened and not speaking up,” said Jackson-Richardson.


She is hoping another anniversary won't end in tragedy.


"Since this man has been killed. I know someone will talk now and this person will be behind bars soon,” said Jackson-Richardson.


Tulsa
homicide detectives, Organized Gang Unit officers and the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force are all working to catch this shooter.

Police have a grainy image of the "Best Buy" shooting-suspect. He's believed to be between 25 and 35-years-old, about 5’6’’ and 180 lbs with a scraggly beard. He was last seen wearing a white jersey with a number “4” on the back and above that it says "let's eat." Surveillance photos show a small, black getaway car.


If you have any information call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596-COPS (2677) or text a tip to “CRIMES” (274637) and begin your message with “TIP918” or you can submit a tip online at www.tipsubmit.com. Remember you never have to give your name and your tip could lead to a cash reward.

Graydon "Wes" Brown's funeral will be held on Saturday afternoon.  The family has set up an education fund for his daughter at any BOK branch.

They have nothing else to live for but pretending to be hip hop rappers, with their baggy pants and trashy cars sitting on shiny 24's. I laugh everytime I see one broke down on the side of the road, with 2K in rims and probably more in car audio. Their priorities are jacked up, and you can't tell them anything. White/black/brown/yellow, color doesn't matter. Ignorance and trash are the common denominator between these folks. They actually think their cause is worth killing for. Sad thing is, they have to have a gun to settle their differences - COWARDS!!
