Update: Shawnee home invasion suspect charged, others in jail
Police have identified Qualynn Morrison,19, of Oklahoma City as the second male suspect in the Shawnee home invasion which occurred the morning of Thursday, Dec. 26.
According to court records, Morrison was officially charged Thursday, Jan. 2 with one count of burglary in the first degree, conspiracy and possession of a fire arm during commission of a felony.
Currently Morrison is being held at the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center police said and he was arrested with an underage female suspect Monday, Dec. 30.
According to Shawnee Police Cpl. Vivian Lozano, the Oklahoma City Police Department, the United States Marshals, and the Pott. County Sheriff’s Office all assisted in the investigation for the Shawnee home invasion.
According to the U.S. Marshals in Oklahoma City, Clayton Lamont Moore Jr.,18, of OKC was arrested on a traffic stop around 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 2. He is the third person of interest in connection to the Shawnee burglary.
Records show Moore is currently being held at the Oklahoma County Jail and he was brought in for unauthorized use of a vehicle and using a vehicle to facilitate the intentional discharge of a fire arm.
According to Laura Willis, Second Deputy Court Clerk in Pott. County, Moore has not been officially charged with anything.
Willis said once Moore is released from Oklahoma County by bond, sentencing or something else he will be brought to Pott. County.
According to a press release from the U.S. Marshals, Moore is wanted on a Pott. County felony arrest warrant for Burglary 1, conspiracy to commit a felony and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony.
The release stated, U.S. Marshals with the assistance of the Oklahoma County Police Department Gang Unit arrested Moore.
Lozano said the arrests of Morrison and the underage female came after a day-long surveillance in the Oklahoma City area. In addition, because the female suspect is a minor Lozano said her name and information cannot be released.
The case was an active investigation from the incident that occurred in Shawnee Lozano said.
Police began searching for two black males who had been captured on a RING security camera video at a home in the Northridge Addition.
The duo, armed with handguns, were invading a Shawnee house in that neighborhood while the occupants were home the morning of Dec. 26.
According to a release issued Friday, Dec. 27 from Shawnee Police Chief Mason Wilson's office, the burglary occurred around 10 a.m. and the RING footage showed the two suspects enter the residence in the area of Oak Hill and Center Street with handguns.
Wilson said at the time of the invasion, the homeowners were in the house, but they were unaware of the two suspects in their home.
The security footage, Wilson said, shows the two men in the home for a short amount of time and then leaving through the same door they entered and were believed to be in a light-colored car.
As a result of this case, other similar incidents around Pott. County were reportedly connected, according to police, so Shawnee police were working with the Pott. County Sheriff's Office.
While the three persons allegedly involved in this case are now in custody, Lozano said residents should continue to remain vigilant when it comes to their safety and securing their property.
She advises everyone to always keep home and car doors locked and not to open their door if someone is knocking on the door that they don't recognize. Any suspicious activity should be reported to police.
