Two die in weekend homicides

by Juliana Keeping Published: November 26, 2012

Bodies continue to fall in Oklahoma City.

Two people died in separate weekend homicides, one southwest, one northwest OKC. Details, like the victims’ names, are scant Monday and homicide detectives are catching up on their zzz’s following the weekend violence.

Sunday: About 7:15 p.m., a white man in his 30s was shot multiple times outside his vehicle at a car wash in the 2100 block of SW 51. He was taken to OU Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Monday:Police responded about 2:30 a.m. to 6712 W Wilshire Blvd. near W Wilshire Boulevard and N MacArthur Boulevard. One man was pronounced dead at the scene and another man was taken to OU Medical Center where he was in fair condition with a gunshot wound.

While I took a break from blogging to delve into the climbing homicide rate and possible reasons it’s tracking higher this year, I missed noting a few killings.

Those who died are:

Christopher Allen, 34, was found shot to death Nov. 9 at 2217 NW 117.

Jose Plancarte, 23, was stabbed to death Nov. 13 at the Copa Cabana Club, 3544 Newcastle Road.

Janet Kay Hume, 77, was discovered by police Nov. 14 at 11000 S Bryant after a standoff with her son. What’s not clear is how long she’d been dead. Her son, Gerald David Hume, is accused of shooting her and dismembering her body.

Jonathan Charles Braggs, 19, was shot to death during a drug transaction Nov. 15, police said. Police arrested Jonathan Daniels in the killing.
