Man Pleads Guilty In Tulsa Hmong Festival Shooting
TULSA, Oklahoma - One of the men charged in the shooting at a Hmong New Year's festival in Tulsa pleaded guilty Monday morning. Boonlee Lee pleaded guilty to amended charges of assault and battery with a deadly weapon and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Five men in all were wounded in the October 2013 shooting at an event center on East 31st Street. Victims ranged from their late teens to their early 50s and were hit in the stomach, arms and legs, according to Tulsa Police.
Court documents show Meng Lee, who was also charged in the shooting, pleaded no contest in November 2015 to accessory after the fact. He still has a few months to serve in his one-year prison sentence.
