Jennings man arrested on first-degree murder charges after allegedly killing his father

On Friday, October 2nd at 5:30 a.m. Officer Michael Marcum responded to a 911 call of a shooting at 465th W. Ave in Jennings. Twenty-nine-year-old Steven Haddock Jr. told police he had shot his father, Steven Haddock Sr.

Officer Marcum found Haddock Sr. in a bedroom on the floor, deceased, with a bullet wound in his chest. Marcum had the defendant, Steven Haddock Jr., transported to the Creek County Sheriff’s office to be interviewed about the situation.

At the sheriff’s office, Marcum asked Haddock if he understood why he was there. Haddock said, “yes, because I shot my dad!”

Marcum began to ask about what led to the shooting. According to the police report, Haddock said he “felt like he had been raped the last few nights.” He said would wake up and his anus would hurt. He began sleeping with a gun, in case he caught who was doing the assault. During the interview, Haddock explained that he had woken up at 4:30 a.m. that morning, with a painful sensation on his anus, and a liquid, mucus-like substance on his buttocks. Haddock said he took his gun downstairs to confront his parents.

Haddock’s mother was in the kitchen, and he asked her to join him and his father in his parents’ bedroom so that he could speak with both of them. Police say that when he had them together in the room, he asked them “are you two raping me?” and “Which one of you are raping me?” Haddock’s mother said she didn’t know what he was talking about and kept asking him to put the gun down.

According to the arrest affidavit, Haddock Jr. and his father began arguing back and forth and Haddock Sr. told him, “if you really feel like something happened, then go the official route and call 911.” Police say that Haddock Jr. refused to do so, insisting that his father be the one to call. Haddock Jr. told police “when [Haddock Sr.] said ‘no,’ I knew he was guilty and could get my revenge, so I shot him in the chest.”

Steven Ray Haddock Jr. was booked on charges of first-degree murder. His first hearing will be on Tuesday, October 13th.
