LEXINGTON, Okla. -- Authorities are investigating a homicide after the body of a 55-year-old man was found inside a home Sunday afternoon.

The OSBI said Gary Norton, Sr. was shot and killed inside his house in Lexington.

"I'm just kind of at a loss for words with it to be honest with you," Gary Norton, Jr. said, the victim's son. "He didn't deserve this at all. Whoever did it should be publicly executed."

Family members waited outside the home Monday as investigators continued to collect evidence.

The victim's son said he talked to his dad Saturday night.

He was going to go fishing with his grandkids Easter Sunday.

Investigators said there have not been any arrests in connection to the murder.

The OSBI said one of Norton's sons was arrested on unrelated charges.

He is now being questioned about his father's murder.
