Family Fight Turns Deadly In Hardesty
12/31/2009

One man is dead in Hardesty as a family fight turned into a triple shooting Wednesday afternoon, according to the State Bureau of Investigation.

In a story in the Guymon Daily Herald, James Ray Clayton, 24 of Hardesty, is the gunman who killed his step-father, whose name is not yet being released by law enforcement officials. Clayton, who was also shot, was airlifted to Northwest Texas Healthcare Center in Amarillo, Texas, where he remains in critical condition.

Clayton's mother, whose identity is also not being released, was injured in the altercation as well. She was grazed on the shoulder by a bullet. Officials confirmed that she was treated and released at the Memorial Hospital of Texas County in Guymon.

Investigators are not releasing who shot Clayton or his mother. Police believe Clayton shot and killed his step-father, shot and wounded his mother, then shot himself in the head.

Morgan Wikinson, Guymon's local OSBI (Okla. State Bureau of Investigation) agent says the incident occurred inside the residence as well as outside. The victim's body was found in the front yard. He also says there were witnesses to the shooting, all of which were legal adults.

A call was received by authorities at 2:48 p.m. on Wednesday advising of a domestic dispute. Some Hardesty residents say that they heard the gun shots.

"We could hear the shots," said a Hardesty resident. "This isn't the first time there was a family fight there."

Upon further investigating, The Guymon Daily Herald has confirmed that this is not the first domestic dispute Clayton has been involved in. He was charged with Domestic Abuse- Assault and Battery stemming from an incident in May of this year.

The victims body was transported to Oklahoma City where it will undergo an autopsy.
