Investigation involved FBI, Henryetta Police
Brayden Zane Graham, age 18, of Tulsa, entered a guilty plea to one count of Using, Carrying, Brandishing and Discharging a Firearm During and in Relation to a Crime of Violence.
The plea came this week and was announced by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma.
The charges arose from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Henryetta Police Department.
The Indictment alleged that on Dec. 29, 2022, Graham fired on a vehicle and its three passengers. An investigation revealed that Graham attempted to overtake three passengers in a truck. As the truck fled, Graham fired several rounds into the back of the vehicle.
The crime occurred in Okmulgee County, within the boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Reservation, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma.
Judge Gerald L. Jackson accepted the plea, and ordered the completion of a pre-sentence investigation report. Graham was remanded to custody of the U.S. Marshal pending sentencing.
Assistant United States Attorney Jordan Howanitz represented the United States.
