OKLAHOMA CITY -

A 16-year-old has turned himself in for the murder of 16-year-old Armani Combs.

Police said Jonjon Wilson shot Combs last Tuesday at the Autumn Run Apartments near Northwest 105th Street and Western Avenue.

Wilson came to the police department with his mother, according to officers.

Investigators said the boys had a fight, and Wilson pulled a gun.

Combs’ family said they want more aggressive gun laws, and better community outreach.

“When kids have guns, it’s because of loopholes in the law that allow them to get them,” said Ashley Combs, Armani’s Aunt.

The family questions how the 16-year-old had possession of the gun.

“There were allegations that this young man had been out, brandishing a gun before. Maybe had someone had enough courage to call 911 to say they had seen this kid with a gun, or heard of someone with a firearm, make that known to law enforcement,” said Tina Adams, the victim’s grandmother.

This is the second gun-related death the family has experienced.

Armani’s father was killed in 2015, and the case was never solved.

“It tore me apart when I heard the news that my brother was shot, but I am disappointed that we as the black community fight against the police and ignore the gun violence in our community. If we as the black community allow this problem to continue then we are no better than the police that we are protesting against,” said Ghaunte' Lewis, Armani’s Uncle.

Family said funeral expenses have been paid, but if you would like to send flowers, please call the Rolf Funeral Home at 405-424-4136.

Armani Combs’ service will be Wednesday at 11 a.m. at 2936 NE 36th St, Oklahoma City, OK 73111.

To date, there have been no court filings involving Wilson.

Police have confirmed he faces a complaint of murder for Armani’s death.
