OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Murder charges have been filed against three Oklahoma City men in separate cases.

18-year-old David Lee Salazar and 25-year-old Michael Leallen Leforce are charged with last month's shooting death of 23-year-old Ismael Rios.

Rios died from a gunshot wound to the chest. An affidavit says witnesses heard men arguing in front of a southwest Oklahoma City house and then heard a gunshot.

Court records say a witness told police Salazar later admitted he shot the victim.

In the other case, eighteen-year-old Brandon Markee Wilkins is charged with the robbery and shooting of Jorge Armando Garcia Lira.

Lira told police he had been robbed. Witnesses reported seeing Wilkins leaving the scene.

Lira died two days later.
