TULSA – The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, CAIR-OK, announced on Thursday that $25,000 has been raised for the family of Khalid Jabara.

CAIR-OK said that through the donations made by more than 460 people, they were able to meet the goal amount.
Khalid Jabara, 37, was fatally shot on August 12, police say, by his neighbor while out on his front porch in south Tulsa.

Majors plead not guilty this week to charges of first degree murder, felony possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony, and two misdemeanors, malicious intimidation and harassment, and threatening a violent act.
