2 more charged with robbery with a weapon in Norman



Wren was shot in the lower back area of his torso and his right shoulder. He was treated at OU Medical Center.

After Lehman shot him, all three walked through the residence, and Kembel took Wren’s laptop, a backpack, a pair of shoes and a gym bag, according to an affidavit.

When Lehman was later interviewed in April, he admitted to entering Wren’s home and shooting him with a rifle during the robbery. Kembel, on the other hand, only admitted to driving Lehman to and from the residence.

The affidavit states Kembel claimed he never entered the home. At the conclusion of his interview, he said he was “withholding information regarding his involvement in the incident due to personal reasons.”

In an interview with detectives March 29, Williams said he did not know Kembel and Lehman were going to rob or shoot Wren. He also claimed he stayed outside while the other two forced their way into the home and he heard a series of gunshots once they were inside, the affidavit said.

When he entered the residence, he saw Wren laying on the ground with gunshot wounds. He ran from the residence shortly after, Williams told detectives.

Kembel has previously been convicted of or pled guilty to five other felony charges, all drug related.

Williams also had felony charges filed against him, including knowingly concealing stolen property and obstructing an officer in 2011.
