The man arrested Tuesday as a suspect in the shooting death of Faye Gray, 89, and the injury of her 21-year-old caregiver has been charged with murder and theft. He was officially booked into the Lubbock County jail Wednesday morning at 4 a.m. 

Sampson Blake Oguntope, 21, of Lubbock has been charged with murder and with theft between $500 and $1500 based upon warrants that were drafted Tuesday according to online jail records.  KCBD NewsChannel 11 learned that prior to being booked Oguntope was with Lubbock County Sheriff's Department investigators. 

Officers from the Slaton Police Department who were first on scene found both victims with injuries that were consistent with gunshots.

Two other men were arrested at Oguntope's home for interfering with public duties. They are Phillip Michael Murphy, 25, and Charles Henry Burgess, 27. Rowe says they apparently interrupted investigators from conducting their investigation at the residence.

Sheriff's Deputies and Slaton Police responded to the shooting at 1480 W. Crosby St. at 11:30 a.m. Slaton and Roosevelt schools were on lockdown for a time while officers searched the southeastern portion of Lubbock County.
