Family members and witnesses are demanding answers and disagree with the official story after Oklahoma police officers shot and killed a Black man celebrating his 24th birthday outside an event venue early Sunday morning Jan. 17.

Zonterius “Zon” Johnson was one of the last guests leaving the Lavish Lounge “social club” around 4 a.m. Sunday morning at the same time police officers say they were preparing to implement a bar check. Officers ultimately shot Zon, and he later died at the hospital.

“No one with the Lawton Police Department has shown no type of condolence to me for them murdering my son and I just think that’s so wrong,” Johnson’s mother, Meyoshia Gray, said.

She and Johnson’s grandmother said Zon was a good kid enjoying his birthday and wasn’t looking for any trouble. They also said they want justice and accountability as they demanded the officer who fired the fatal shot to step forward.
