Friends plan vigil, benefit to honor Tulsa murder victim

TULSA, Okla. — Nathan Hull was shot and killed Thursday night outside of DD’s Double Shots in Midtown Tulsa. Now, his friends are trying to come to terms with what happened.

Hull was well-known in the Tulsa music industry. Two of Hull’s friends, Ashleigh Cooper and Eric Stafford, own Cimarron Bar in east Tulsa. Once they heard the news, they sprung into action. They are planning a benefit to raise money for Nathan’s children. So far, 15 bands are playing at the event.

Stafford says he’s known Hull for nearly 20 years. He’s the type of guy that everyone wanted to be around. “He was always laughing, no matter what was going on in his life. He was always worried about if we were okay,” said Cooper.

“He was one of my best friends. The memories that we have, they’ve been stupid and goofy,” said Kimberly Hitchcock. She’s known him for more than a decade. Hull event played at a benefit organized for her battle against cancer.

The benefit is set right now for August 22. If anyone would like to donate or help out you can reach out to the Cimarron Bar.
