A man in custody at the Tulsa Jail on public intoxication and weapons complaints has been charged in connection with an Oct. 7 shooting.
Richard Eugene Parker, 29, was charged with shooting with intent to kill, possession of a firearm after the former conviction of a felony and a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery on Monday, Tulsa County District Court records show.
Prosecutors allege Parker punched 30-year-old Pesa Wilbert in the face and shot him with a pistol.
Wilbert, whose name was previously published as Peso Wilber, suffered gunshot wounds to his lower extremities in the 7100 block of East 10th Street, police said previously.
The shooting followed an altercation at the 727 Club, 727 N. Sheridan Road, after two people went looking for the mother of three young children left in their care for several days, they said.
“Angry club patrons” followed the woman home, where Wilbert was shot, the Tulsa World previously reported.
Parker has three criminal cases pending in district court and faces charges including assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless conduct with a firearm, second-degree burglary and a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of alcohol.
He’s accused of threatening a man and hitting him in the face with a .38-caliber handgun Oct. 20. The filings allege he also shot the handgun into the air six times.
The burglary charge stems from an incident in November 2011 in the 7800 block of East 49th Street during which a 47-inch flat screen TV, a gaming system and a laptop computer were stolen from an apartment. Burglary and larceny charges were filed in that case on April 19.
Parker was convicted of burglary and related charges in Kay and Tulsa counties in 2005 and 2003, respectively. He served 17 months of a four-year sentence in the Kay County case and was released in January 2008.
He was to remain on probation until 2019.
