Two convicted felons were arrested and their three children were taken into protective custody after an apparent accidental shooting early Tuesday.
Tulsa police responded to a shooting in the 1900 block of West Easton Court around 2:30 a.m.
The victim, Lucky Garris Calvert, 33, told police he’d been shot in an attempted robbery on West Edison Street, said Sgt. Malcolm Wightman. Calvert was treated for his injuries and later released to police.
Upon further questioning, Calvert’s girlfriend told police Calvert accidentally shot himself in the shoulder while inside their home, Wightman said.
Investigators discovered a sawed-off shotgun and marijuana in the residence and determined the pistol with which Calvert shot himself had been stolen, police said. Representatives with the Department of Human Services were contacted to care for a 10-month-old, a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old living in the home.
Calvert was jailed on the following complaints: possession of a firearm after the former conviction of a felony, possession of a sawed-off shotgun, possession of marijuana in the presence of a minor and knowingly concealing stolen property. His bond is set at $25,000.
Calvert pleaded no contest to armed robbery in 1995. He was incarcerated from May 1996 until December 2005, Department of Corrections records show.
Calvert’s girlfriend, Stephanie Marie Gutierez, 25, was jailed on the same complaints as well as obstructing an officer. She also had three outstanding warrants for traffic violations.
Gutierez, whose last name appears at Gutierrez in some jail records, was convicted of larceny from a person in 2006, according to the DOC. She served 10 months in prison.
