A fatal Oklahoma City gunfight resulted in 10-year prison sentences for three men.

Martaveous Dwayne Gillioms, 21, and William Tyangelo Proctor, 24, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the death of Jason Lee Banks, 37, who was fatally shot Jan. 27, 2017. Both Oklahoma City men were also sentenced for illegally possessing firearms.

“I entered into a fight with (Banks),” Gillioms wrote in his plea paperwork. “During that fight, I fired my gun, and (Banks) died as a cause of my shooting.”

Omar Rashaad Adams, 33, of Oklahoma City, pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm after a felony conviction and pleaded no contest to shooting with intent to kill.

Officers found Banks dead in his Honda Civic near an apartment complex at NW 18 and Youngs Boulevard. Gillioms was injured and was treated at a hospital.

Witnesses reported hearing shots and seeing three gun-wielding subjects, including Proctor and Adams, trying to assist Gillioms. Adams and Proctor yelled at people in the apartment complex that “if they called 911 they would get shot next,” according to a court affidavit.

Gillioms told police a fight broke out, and Banks fired a shot from his car, according to the affidavit. The bullet struck Gillioms in the stomach, so he shot several rounds back at Banks’ car, police reported.

Proctor also admitted to shooting at the victim.

“I fired a gun at (Banks) in the heat of passion after being in a fist fight with him,” he wrote in his guilty plea. “The shot fired by me was a cause of (Banks’) death along with other factors.”

Gillioms was convicted of second-degree murder in a September jury trial. He and two others were found guilty of beating and stomping Maurice “Little Smoke” Pendleton on July 18, 2017, in the Oklahoma County jail.

He will serve his 10-year sentence for Banks’ death at the same time as his 25-year prison term for murder.

Proctor also was charged with first-degree murder in Tulsa County over a 2013 drive-by shooting.

Adams’ sentence will run concurrently with three convictions for assault and battery on a police officer.
