One charged, another released in shooting death of Oklahoma City man
Prosecutors have filed a murder charge in the shooting death of Javier Collazo, 34, who was shot to death in his sport utility vehicle in southwest Oklahoma City last month.
One person has been charged with murder and another released without charges in the case of a man who was shot to death in a sport utility vehicle last month in southwest Oklahoma City.
Robert Dale Flenory, 20, was charged with the murder of Javier Collazo, 34, who was found Sept. 15 with a gunshot wound after his SUV hit a telephone pole at SW 15 and Pennsylvania Avenue.
Brandon L. Rollans, 27, of Bethany, was arrested Sept. 25 on a murder warrant in the case, but was released from jail with no charges being filed.
Rollans told The Oklahoman he was exonerated, but police said the case is ongoing.
Police Capt. Dexter Nelson said Rollans was released but still is under investigation in the case.
Records filed when Rollans was arrested said he called a witness and said he shot Collazo, including details in his account that had not been released by investigators.
A probable cause affidavit filed by police said one of Flenory's fingerprints was found in the SUV.
Police interviewed Flenory, who was in jail on an unrelated robbery case.
Flenory told investigators he was at the scene of the shooting but did not pull the trigger.
He said a woman he knew only by a nickname shot Collazo, the affidavit states.
None of the records included with the charges against Flenory mention Rollans.
