Surviving sibling released from hospital after Nuyaka shooting
OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — The second victim of the Nuyaka shooting, a 16-year-old, has been declared dead after being taken off life support on Nov. 6.
The third victim, 14, has been released from the hospital according to a family spokesperson.
Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office released an update Nov. 5 detailing the 16-year-old’s status. A member of her family has told media that her organs have saved the lives of eight people.
According to the OCSO media release, Amy Hall, who is currently being held without bond, will be facing updated charges now that a second victim of the alleged shooting has expired.
‘At that time it can be expected that the complaint Hall is being held on will be modified to include an additional charge of First-Degree Murder,’ the release stated.
In addition to the press release, Mvskoke Media obtained an arrest affidavit prepared by Investigator Smokey Patchin and filed Nov. 2.
According to the affidavit Hall, age 38, voluntarily spoke to law enforcement once in custody and agreed to provide a statement.
Hall is reported to have become visibly upset when asked who the victims were.
‘When asked for names, the defendant only replied that she didn’t wish to speak their names but advised the victims were “kids,” ages 16 and 18,’the affidavit stated.
Records reflect that Hall ultimately identified the victims by name.
‘She further stated that she shot Kayson Hall, (age 18), in the head while he was sleeping in his bed,’ the document stated.
The two girls ages 16, and 14 were both asleep in the same room according to the affidavit.
The records state Hall admitted to shooting the oldest girl while she slept and then fired at the younger one. At least one round was discharged into the wall in the attempt.
Hall told law enforcement that she used a pistol in the incident.
‘The defendant stated (the 14-year-old) ran into the bathroom, then came out and took the pistol from her (Hall) hand,’ the document stated.
Hall told authorities that she then left the home and was contacted by law enforcement units in Okmulgee.
Afterwards, she was taken into custody.
The report states there was one other occupant in the home besides the siblings at the time of the shooting.
‘Eddieson Baldridge, age 18, was asleep in the same room as Kayson at the time of the shooting,’ the affidavit stated.
Patchin reported that initially, Hall could not explain her motive for the shooting. However, when asked if she intended to harm Baldridge, she claimed that she did not.
‘When asked if intended to kill the children and herself, she indicated that she did plan to do so and that (the youngest child) interrupted the plan, taking the pistol from her,’ the affidavit states.
When pressed for a motive, the report said she referred to malicious acts by her ex-husband towards the children.
‘…she indicated she believed her ex-husband had been engaged in a sexual relationship with all of the children and “some part of me thought I was saving them,” ‘the document stated.
Hall is set to appear in court Nov. 29, for initial appearances before Judge Pandee Ramirez.
Mvskoke Media will continue to provide updates as they become available.
