Accessory charges filed in shooting case

Two Pawhuskans have been charged as accessories in the shooting of a man outside a local residence early this year.

Skylar Anthony Ames, 23, was taken into custody a few hours after the incident, which occurred around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 6, near 10th Street and Revard Avenue.

The original charge against Ames was shooting with intent to kill. A week later, however, the Osage County District Attorney’s office upgraded that charge against Ames to attempted murder in the first-degree — which increased his bond requirement from $500,000 to a cash-only amount of $1 million. Not guilty pleas have been entered for Ames, who remains a prisoner in the Osage County Jail.

Identified as the victim of the shooting was Reggie Reyes, 20, who sustained a serious wound to the abdomen. After first being taken to the local hospital, Reyes was transported by helicopter ambulance to a Tulsa hospital, where he later underwent emergency surgery. Police said recently that Reyes appears to have recovered from the gunshot wound.

In early February, 23-year-old Wesley Wayne Patterson was charged as an accessory to shooting with intent to kill. Patterson has been held on $15,000 bond and is currently awaiting a Friday hearing before Osage County Special Judge Stuart Tate. Ames is also scheduled for a hearing with Judge Tate on Friday.

Last Wednesday, Feb. 18, an arrest warrant was issued for Tamara Jannell Sosa, a 27-year-old Pawhuska woman, who is also being charged as an accessory to shooting with intent to kill. According to a police affidavit that was filed in the case, Sosa had been in the company of Ames shortly after Reyes was shot. As of Monday afternoon, no arrest of Sosa had been reported.
