Juveniles arrested in shooting death of Australian national

Baseball player, Chris Lane, was out for a jog



Ford said DPD has received some phone calls from people who were concerned about safety in the community.
“They’re in jail. The problem is locked up,” he said. 
“We have had problems with two of the three juveniles in the past,” Ford said. When officers responded to the report at 7:05 p.m. Friday, one of the juveniles was recognized by one of the officers, based on previous contact, Ford said.
Lane’s body was taken to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office. 
Ford declined to say how many times he was shot but indicated the M.E. was nearly ready to release him to the family. 
The anonymous family member told The Banner that Lane will be taken back to Australia.
