2019-10-31 ne-gatzman lance


Tulsa County prosecutors charged a man Wednesday on allegations that he stabbed another man to death during a fight that was reportedly over a bicycle.

Prosecutors charged Lance Dylan Gatzman, 22, with first-degree murder. Gatzman allegedly stabbed a man, identified in court documents as Christian Isaiah Jones, on Oct. 24.

Investigators said the two men got into a fight about 1 p.m. that day at Youth Services of Tulsa, which is near Fourth Street and Norfolk Avenue.

Witnesses broke up the altercation, but Gatzman then allegedly chased down Jones and stabbed him in the upper torso, according to a previous story. Gatzman allegedly fled the area, and medical personnel pronounced Jones dead at a hospital. Patrol officers located and arrested Gatzman a short while later in the 700 block of South Norfolk Avenue. Gatzman is being held in Tulsa County jail in lieu of a $1 million bond.
