Deputies: Rogers County party ends in gunshots

ROGERS COUNTY, Okla. — Officials at the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office said a party involving meth ended with a man firing several shots at another man.

Deputies said it happened at a home near the Will Rogers Turnpike and S. 4200 Road Saturday morning. Three people were involved.

The first call came out as a burglary-in-progress with shots fired. Officials said Lewis Stephens told deputies he fired at a man after he broke into his home and stole coins. However, deputies later determined the three had consumed meth during a party earlier.

Deputies said Ricky Jaramillo left for a gas station but came back after receiving a message from Lewis’ girlfriend, Tabitha Tamayo. They said Jaramillo realized Lewis was closing a gate when he arrived and had a bat and a .22 rifle. Investigators said the two were setting up a trap for Jaramillo.

According to deputies, Lewis fired multiple shots at Jaramillo, who was able to drive away. Deputies found bullet holes in the side of the car.

Deputies said Lewis’ 13-year-old child was in the presence of the drugs and the shooting incident. Officials said the child was the real victim in this event.
