TULSA, Oklahoma, The family of a 21-year-old Tulsa man shot and paralyzed by a security guard on February 4, 2015 says that guard was high on marijuana at the time.
They say because the guard, Ricky Stone, had marijuana and prescription drugs in his system the night he shot Monroe Bird, III, he should’ve been charged in the shooting.
Attorneys representing the family of Monroe Bird III, who died last month after being shot and paralyzed by a security guard outside an area apartment complex, said a toxicology report showed the guard was under influence of drugs.
