Report: Man called 911 after Australian slain, saying three teens were trying to kill his son

DUNCAN, Okla. —  A man told police that the three teenagers charged in connection with the shooting death of an Australian baseball player in Duncan were out to kill his son later that day.

Police reported previously that someone called 911 four hours after 22-year-old Christopher Lane was fatally shot while jogging along Country Club Road on Friday and said there were some juveniles with guns who wanted to kill someone.

That call from a residence at 111 W. Ash at 7:05 p.m. Friday quickly led police to the nearby parking lot Immanuel Baptist Church where the teens were apprehended.

Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said early Thursday that the man who called from Ash, James Johnson, told detectives later that the person the teens were out to harm was his son.

“We were told there was some sort of falling out between the boys,” Ford said.

Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks declined to comment on that call Wednesday. His office has the recording of the 911 call that led police to the teens but has not yet released it.
