Potential Threat To Guymon Residents Thwarted
01/21/2010

What may have started as a small house party turned into a brawl and a significant arrest for Shane C. Sommers, 19, of Guymon.

In the early morning hours of January 3, 2010, Guymon Police Department and Texas County sheriff's deputies responded to a call about a fight at 150 NE 24th Street, an apartment complex.

After officers told Sommers of their reason for being there, Sommers told police one of his friends and a their girlfriend had gotten into a fight but that it had been broken up. Officers requested permission to go inside the apartment and Sommers obliged.

According to a story in the Guymon Daily Herald, Sommers became "nervous" as he waited outside with an officer. When asked what was wrong with him, Sommers responded by saying that he "has been trying to be good and do the right thing but it never works out for him."

Back inside the apartment, officers found three male suspects and marijuana and a brown pipe in a box in an empty bedroom. As the search continued, officers found quantities of alcohol and beer and rolling papers. When the search turned to Sommers' master bedroom, officers found evidence that could have indicated they got there just in time in the closet of the bedroom.

There, police found two weapons, a Winchester 30-30 rifle and a loaded 20-gauge Mossberg shotgun with five shells loaded in the weapon. Additionally, police found a silver briefcase that contained a hatchet and numerous rounds of varying ammunition.

As officers continued their search, they came upon five gun shells. There, inscribed on the shells, were the names of four local people, one name on each shell, and the name of Sommers himself on the fifth shell.

After police left the scene, each person named on the shells were immediately notified and advised of the situation. At the police department, Sommers was questioned by detectives about the names on the shells.

According to the story, Sommers told police that he "had been depressed and bored when he did it but [advised] that he did not have any intention on killing anyone."

Sommers was arrested and charged with three counts of planning, threatening serious bodily harm or death, keeping or maintaining a dwelling for use of Controlled Dangerous Substances (CDS), possession of paraphernalia, minor in possession of alcohol, furnishing liquor to minors and possession of stolen property.

A bond of $100,000 was set for Sommers.
