Prosecutors say Thompson was one of four men involved in an east Tulsa robbery back in January.

Police say a store clerk shot at the men, killing two of them.

The clerk was not charged, but the other surviving suspect, 17-year-old George Williamson, is also charged with two counts of murder as an adult.
