Ponca City police report that Warrior is one of three subjects accused of being involved in a drive by shooting that occurred on Oct. 15 in the 700 block of east Albany.

Sgt. Eric Welch reports that he responded to the call and located two empty .40 caliber brass casings in the street.

Five people were inside the targeted residence.

Surveillance footage reportedly shows a black Cadillac pull up in front of the home. A subject gets out and walks up to the porch and tries to open the door. The subject then gets back in the vehicle and the driver starts to drive off as someone fires three shots at the home.

One of the residents told police that the subject in the video looks like 19-year-old Francisco Campos.

Officer Miguel Garcia reportedly had made contact with 17-year-old Samuel Campos during a traffic stop earlier in the week and that he was in a black Cadillac that matches the description of the suspect vehicle. 

Police determined that during the traffic stop, Francisco Campos identified himself as Samuel Campos. Warrior was also identified as being in the vehicle during the traffic stop.

Francisco Campos was later arrested and charged with felony discharging a firearm into a dwelling, conspiracy and drug charges. He is being held on $250,000 bond.

Samuel Campos is charged as an adult with felony drug charges including drug trafficking and conspiracy to traffic in meth. He is being held in the Garfield County Juvenile Detention Center and set for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 22.

On Oct. 19 Garcia reportedly located a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle at 2nd Street and Roosevelt. The vehicle was stopped in the 700 block of N. Pine. The driver identified himself as Warrior.

Warrior was read his rights but refused to speak with officers.

Det. Sgt. Cory Vincent responded and sealed the vehicle before it was impounded.

A search warrant was obtained.

Police report finding a pistol with a round in the chamber and blue pills in the vehicle. The pills reportedly tested positive for fentanyl.

The charges were filed against Warrior on Dec. 21 and bond is endorsed at $50,000.

Warrior’s criminal background includes drug charges filed in 2018. In that case he was sentenced to 20 years in prison with all but four years suspended. On July 19, 2021, he was charged with child neglect and domestic assault. That case was dismissed. (see story)
