Gary Lynn Armer Jr., 19, was sentenced to 87 months in prison for one count of voluntary manslaughter, and 87 months for one count of assault with a dangerous weapon with the intent to do bodily harm. Those sentences will be served concurrently.

Charges against Armer arose after a probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office.

On Oct. 19, 2022, Armer pleaded guilty to a two-felony information. According to investigators, Armer drove to a residence and confronted an individual when Armer fatally shot the victim. Armer shot at another individual who was sitting in a vehicle.

Honorable Judge John F. Heil, III presided over the hearing and Armer was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending transportation to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to serve a non-paroleable sentence. Assistant United States Attorney T. Cameron McEwen prosecuted the case.
