Hardesty Man Shot Stepfather Then Himself
01/08/2010

HARDESTY, Okla. (AP) - Police in the Oklahoma Panhandle town of

Hardesty say a man suspected of killing his stepfather before

shooting himself was released from a mental hospital the day of the

shooting.

Police Chief Don Brock says 24-year-old James Ray Clayton was

taken to Western State Psychiatric Center in Fort Supply for

"mental instability" on Dec. 28. Brock says Clayton was released

Dec. 30 and later that day shot and killed William "Clay"

Clayton, Jr.

Police say Clayton also shot at his mother before shooting

himself in the head. He remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Brock says he wants to know why Clayton was released from the

hospital after two days.

Hospital officials declined comment.

Hardesty is 20 miles east of Guymon.
