Standoff Follows Okla. Parole Officer's Slaying

May 21, 2012  | 

After a brief standoff, Midwest City (Okla.) Police officers arrested a man who fatally shot a probation officer at a residence.

Officers took Lester Kinchion, 21, into custody on Friday. Kinchion faces a murder charge for allegedly shooting 32-year-old Jeffrey McCoy, a probation and parole officer with the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. McCoy was shot while visiting an individual under pre-release supervision at a home in the 1400 block of Maple Drive.

Kinchion was not the man McCoy was visiting, reports The Oklahoman.

Damn shame this scum was taken in one piece. Now the State has to babysit him til he gets what he deserves. My condolences to Officer McCoys family.
