Police arrest alleged motorcycle gang member charged in connection with brawl slaying

A man who was previously charged with second-degree murder in connection to a slaying that allegedly occurred during a brawl between rival motorcycle gangs last summer was arrested Thursday.

Leon Anthony Harris was booked into the Tulsa County Jail in lieu of a $515,000 bond. In addition to the murder charge, Harris was charged in September with aggravated assault and battery and a gang-related offense.

Harris was one of five men who prosecutors say were involved in an assault at Torchy’s Briar Patch, 1111 S. 124th East Ave., on June 3. The assault resulted in the shooting death of 49-year-old James Mitchell, while a second man was hospitalized with a severe head injury.
