A Tulsa judge has denied bond for the man accused of shooting and killing two men last week at two different locations, in what investigators call unprovoked attacks.

Carlton Gilford is in jail accused of shooting and killing Lundin Hathcock at the Rudisill Library, then killing James McDaniel at QuikTrip, minutes later. Prosecutors say surveillance video shows Gilford shot McDaniel in the head at QuikTrip, then continued to shoot him, after he was down. They say Gilford even reloaded his gun and shot McDaniel again in the head.

Prosecutors say a QT employee and a security guard were outside the store when they heard the gunshots, so they ran up to the door and that's when Gilford shot at them, they were protected by the store's bulletproof glass.

QT released a statement saying: “We are continuing to work closely with Tulsa Police and assisting with their ongoing investigation. QuikTrip’s top priority is always safety – a responsibility we take very seriously, which is why we are continuously looking for and deploying innovative solutions in our stores that provide our customers with the best experience while ensuring the safety of our customers, employees, and communities in which we are honored to serve.” said, Aisha Jefferson-Smith, QuikTrip’s Corporate Communications Manager.

Prosecutors say Gilford is a threat to the public and the surveillance video clearly shows the crimes.

“These are alarming allegations. to say the least but we are early in the process and the law requires we highlight the fact that he is presumed innocent, he has a constitutional right in that regard, so again we are early,” said Tulsa County Assistant District Attorney Morgan Medders.

Prosecutors are expected to file the charges later this week, including two counts of murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill.
