Oklahoma mom, Amy Hall, shoots and kills son Kayson Toliver, injured two daughters

A shooting in rural Oklahoma Thursday has ended with a mother, Amy Leann Hall, in jailed for killing her 18-year-old son and injuring her two teen daughters, one in critical condition.

Okmulgee County Sheriff Eddy Rice spoke at a press conference, explaining that shooting was reported around 6:30 a.m. at a home in the Nuyaka area, about 35 miles (55 kilometers) southwest of Tulsa. The young man was found dead at the scene, one of the girls was in critical condition and the other was stable.

Hall, 38, is confirmed to be the victims mother. Rice added that the 911 call came from a guest in the home and said the father of the children was not there when the shooting occurred.Deputies arrested Hall, 38 and charged her with first-degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill.

Hall left the home after the shooting and was briefly pursued by officers before being taken into custody, according to Rice.

Kayson Toliver, who died, was a senior running back for the Beggs Golden Demons football team.

Beggs Public Schools Superintendent Brian Terry said Beggs junior Kloee Toliver is in critical condition and the other daughter is in stable condition.

She was being held in the Okmulgee County Jail on preliminary charges while formal charges have not been filed.
“We do not have a motive at this time. We are still investigating this,” he said.

Rice confirmed that no one else is believed to be involved and that there is no risk to the public.

Police have visited the household multiple times, typically for domestic issues, he said. Hall had previously pleaded guilty to a minor larceny charge in 2014.

According to online court records, Hall was in the middle of a two-year custody battle with the father of her children. Last month Hall alleged the man, who had been granted partial custody, sent “threatening and inappropriate” text messages to their son. She also alleged he would show up at their home “at all hours of the night.”

In June 2016, the man claimed that Hall was mentally unstable and was psychologically abusive.
