— Norman police arrested two more men in connection with the fatal shooting of a Norman man on March 27.

Gary Harris, 29, and Montie Jones, 45, were arrested Wednesday on complaints of murder, burglary, robbery and conspiracy in connection with the death of Justin Barnard. Harris and Jones will join four other men who were arrested Friday on complaints of burglary and murder.

Isaiah Walker, 23, Rusty Wooten, 31, Jason Harris, 28, and Michael Tubby, 21 remain in Cleveland County jail.

Barnard, 24, of Norman, was killed when a group of men broke into his home and shot him in the face. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

The incident started in Oklahoma City on March 26 after a dispute between Barnard and his girlfriend. Police said they believe the men broke into the home, which Barnard shares with his grandmother, shot him in retaliation and took his grandmother’s wallet.

During the break-in, Barnard’s grandmother was also hurt, but her injuries were not life threatening. She was treated and released from a hospital that night.

Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley said the investigation is ongoing, and police expect to make more arrests. has disabled the comments for this article.
