DA files charges in Target shooting

EDMOND — Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater has filed a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of a metro man.

Prosecutors allege that David Edward Bloebaum, 57, of Oklahoma City, willfully and with malice aforethought used a handgun to inflict wounds that killed Jasen Shadi Yousif, 28, on Sept. 28, according to court records. In the affidavit of probable cause, filed Friday in Oklahoma County District Court, the victim’s address is listed as being in Edmond. In the Oklahoma City Police Department incident report, it is listed as being in Oklahoma City.

The defendant also faces one count of unlawfully carrying a Kahr P-38 handgun and one count of unlawfully carrying a Glock .40-caliber handgun, according to court records.

On Wednesday, probable cause was found in the case during a hearing, according to court records. Bond was denied. No future court dates have been scheduled.

The defendant has not yet entered a plea in court, according to court records. Defense counsel information was not yet listed.

At about 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 28, Oklahoma City Police Department officers responded to a report of shots being fired with one person down in the parking lot of the Target at 13924 N. Pennsylvania Ave., according to the affidavit.  

During the investigation, it was learned the men had become involved in a disturbance, which led to the defendant following the victim to the Target parking lot as seen on video, police said. The two men were seen driving aggressively toward each other and both pulled into the Target parking lot, police said.

Yousif’s family believes the incident started on the nearby turnpike, KOCO reported. Witnesses said the two cars were driving aggressively before they ended up in the Target parking lot.

The vehicles involved were a 2003 Chevy S10 pickup and a 2005 Ford F250 pickup, police said.

In video, the victim is seen getting out of his truck and approaching the suspect who is in his truck, the affidavit stated. The victim is seen attempting to flee, but he falls a short distance away after being shot, the affidavit stated.

When officers arrived, they found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, which caused the victim’s death, the affidavit stated. The suspect, while at the scene, voluntarily stated that he, in fact, shot the victim, the affidavit stated. A knife was located at the scene, police said.

On Friday, Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said no further updates were available and will not be since the matter is now in the hands of Oklahoma County prosecutors.

Yousif was employed at a metro Gap store, police said.

  • A Q&A on ‘Obamacare’ Court Rulings

    On Tuesday, two federal appeals courts issued conflicting rulings on the legality of tax subsidies being provided to people who bought “Obamacare” health insurance policies in Oklahoma and 35 other states.
    Here’s a look at the rulings’ potential impact in Oklahoma.

    Q: I’m confused. What did the courts rule today?
    A: A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals circuit in Washington, D.C., decided that the government can’t provide tax subsidies for Affordable Care Act plans purchased in 36 states where the federal government is operating the health insurance exchange. Oklahoma is one of the 36 states. A few hours later, the U.S. Court of Appeals circuit in Richmond, Va., issued a conflicting ruling that upheld the legality of the health-care law’s tax subsidies.

  • Former OSU line coach having impact on Texas staff

    It was quite possibly the biggest coaching coup of the offseason and Oklahoma State was at the wrong end of it — former Cowboy offensive line coach Joe Wickline joining the staff for Charlie Strong’s Texas Longhorns.
    “It’s always good when you go hire staff and you look at just getting the right people within your program. And, a lot of times, guys know a lot of Xs and Os, but it’s all just about developing a player,” said Strong, Tuesday during the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days. “Joe and I, we’ve coached together at two different places. But just with him being within his conference and knowing the conference, he’s been a great asset.”
