“Stillwater Pd was excellent. They were able to come out here and utilize their swat team and come out here and secure this residence for us which allowed us to search this residence safely. Definitely, we were thankful for their assistance in this matter. They are a very professional department everything we’ve worked with them,” said TPD Detective Jason White.

Documents say Gainey went to Tulsa for Father's Day and while he was at his father's house he got into an argument with his brother.
