Omeca Humphrey wants to know who killed her son.

Tracey T. Humphrey, 19, of Oklahoma City, was shot about 3:45 a.m. Sept. 26, 2010, while riding in a car near NW 36 and Classen Boulevard. Police think a silver four-door Chrysler sedan with tinted windows may have been involved in the shooting.

Nearly two years later, Omeca Humphrey said there has been little movement in her son's case.

“It's been very traumatic for myself and my family in general, not just for me. We all loved him,” she said. “I hope that someone comes forward, just to give our family some glimmer of hope, some glimmer of peace.”

Humphrey said the night her son died, he was followed from a club, where an altercation had taken place in the parking lot.

“He was followed and they started shooting in the car,” she said. “He was struck in the head. We've gotten some leads but nothing has panned out.”

She believes someone saw something that night.

The driver of the car Humphrey was riding in, Rashad Chavez Yarbrough, 19, of Oklahoma City, pulled over near Interstate 44 and Western Avenue to call 911, police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said at the time of the slaying. Paramedics took Humphrey to OU Medical Center, where he died.

Tracey Humphrey was charged in December 2009 in Oklahoma County court with accessory after the fact to first-degree murder in connection with the Nov. 28 fatal shooting of Dejontae Durham, 17, outside an Oklahoma City night club, court records show.
