Lawrence Ballard was charged on April 29 with first-degree murder for the shooting death of Colby Harris. Harris was shot at the Brightwater Apartments, 2202 S. Phoenix Ave., on April 28. Police believe that Ballard, who uses the street name “Man Man,” had fought with Harris about money shortly before the shooting.
Ballard was later charged on Aug. 11th with second-degree robbery based on allegations that he and several associates assaulted and robbed three University of Tulsa students. Ballard is a documented gang member, belonging to the 107 Hoover Crips and has many associates in the states of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas and has been known to travel to these states frequently, according to the Marshals service. To aid in the task force in the investigation, Ballard has been elevated to the Department of Justice’s national Gang Targeting, Enforcement & Coordination Center’s (GangTECC) Most Wanted List. This most wanted list was developed by in conjunction with the Marshals Service and in partnership with the Fox Television show “America’s Most Wanted.” By profiling Ballard on a much larger scale, the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force intends to reach citizens in other areas that may have seen Ballard or have information to his whereabouts. GangTECC began operations in summer 2006 as the national anti-gang task force created by the Attorney General. It a multi-agency center designed to disrupt and dismantle the most significant and violent gangs in the United States.
