According to the daughter, she and Lake were walking home when a black SUV pulled up and her dad got out, shouting at her.
"I walked away and Jeremy tried to introduce himself, and my dad shot him," KJRH-TV reported.
Lisa Kepler said she ran behind a bush and hid after her father fired shots at her. Then he sped off, she said.
Dad Shannon Kepler, 54, is accused of first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill. Mom Gina Kepler, 48, is accused of being an accessory to murder.
The daughter said her parents kicked her out of the house the week before and dropped her in front of the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. She met Lake there and they began dating. He offered her a place to stay at the home he shared with his aunt, she said.
The Keplers are being held without bail pending the filing of formal charges, police said.
According to the police report, investigators called the Keplers and spoke with Gina, who said she and her husband would surrender to police, leaving the gun in the trunk of her car; however, investigators have been unable to locate the car and the weapon.
Police say the Keplers are not cooperating with the search for the vehicle and weapon.
Both Shannon and Gina Kepler joined the Tulsa police force Aug. 13, 1990. Shannon Kepler works with the police academy. Gina Kepler is a patrol officer with the Gilcrease Division. Both are now on paid administrative leave until charges are formally filed.
