18-Year-Old Indicted for First Degree Murder

An 18-year-old Tulsa man who allegedly initiated a shooting that caused the death of one man and the serious injury of another was indicted this week in federal court, announced U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.

Sir Michael Morgan Jr. was charged with first degree murder in Indian Country; assault with intent to commit murder in Indian Country; assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm in Indian Country; assault resulting in serious bodily injury in Indian Country; and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

On Jan. 29, 2022, Morgan Jr. allegedly murdered Isaiah Jones during a shooting that occurred on N. Johnstown Avenue in Tulsa. He is further alleged to have shot a 17-year-old minor with intent to commit murder during the same incident. During the exchange of gunfire, Morgan Jr. was also shot.

An individual who knew the two victims said he heard the gunshots from inside his home and transported the victims to the hospital. Once there, Jones was pronounced dead from multiple gunshot wounds. The second victim survived.

Morgan Jr. was transported by ambulance to the hospital where he was treated for two gunshot wounds.

The FBI and Tulsa Police Department are the investigative agencies. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stacey P. Todd is prosecuting the case.

An indictment is merely an accusation. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law
