Knife fight among friends injures 2

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — A knife fight among friends at a Wynnewood house, possibly over illegal drugs, now has two of them on the mend from severe injuries and another maybe facing formal charges.

It all came down Tuesday night around 7:30 p.m. when Wynnewood police officers were first contacted about a possible stabbing at 208 South Long.

Officer Bobby Morgan told the Democrat on Thursday it was Brandon Looney who was staying at Wesley Tow’s residence, while Calon Holland Murray was visiting. Ages of the trio were unavailable.

During the visit some type of dispute broke out between Looney and Tow. It quickly turned aggressive before going right to violent.

“Mr. Looney and Mr. Tow said they got into an argument over a pair of pants,” Morgan said.

Although not confirmed, the story given to police could have been a reference to illegal drugs, which were later found in the house when a search warrant was served.

“At some point Mr. Looney got physical with Mr. Tow and punched him in the face,” the Wynnewood officer said.

That apparently led to Murray jumping on Looney’s back where he used a knife to stab him in the chest and arm, while opening up a lengthy gash on his right side.

“Mr. Looney was able to get the knife away and use it to stab Mr. Murray in the gut.”

From that point on the altercation appears to have come to an end.

Despite his serious injuries Murray managed to walk a couple of blocks to a Wynnewood convenience store.

Once there he called for help and was later taken by local police to the emergency room at Pauls Valley General Hospital.

From there Murray was airlifted to an Oklahoma City hospital. There has been no updated information available on his condition.

Looney was taken by ambulance to the PV hospital. There has also been no word on his condition.

Even with the violent nature of the fight, there’s no indication that criminal charges are on the way because of the altercation itself.

“None of the parties want to file charges,” Morgan said.

Any formal allegations that could come in this case could be related to illegal drugs found at the residence during a search conducted by authorities Thursday morning.

According to Morgan, officers found amounts of marijuana, methamphetamine and a mixture of pills, along with various paraphernalia related to drug use, such as clips for marijuana cigarettes, spoons and pipes.
