Shooting spree tied to 4 suspects
OKLAHOMA CITY — New information is being released on a shooting spree in the metro last week.
In less than four hours, three shootings took place on Oklahoma City’s northwest side last Tuesday.
Police now confirm the violent crimes are connected.
The crime spree ended on N.W. 16th St. when two teens walking to school were suddenly attacked.
One of the victims, Bronson Quickle, remains paralyzed from the waist down.
“To have to sit there and watch my son grab his legs when he can’t feel them, it’s really hard,” mother Tammy Jackson said.
That shooting came just three hours after an armed robber shot out this car window on MacArthur.
The victim in that case escaped with only minor injuries after three men tried to rob her outside her apartment complex.
Minutes later, along the Kilpatrick Turnpike, a woman was rushed to the hospital after being beaten and robbed.
All three crimes are tied to the same armed suspects.
“Although all the suspects were not seen in every incident, we believe all are involved in all three incidents,”OKC Police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.
The shooting on the turnpike did allow officers to recover a picture of what is believed to be the suspect vehicle driving away from the crime.
Unfortunately, suspect descriptions are limited.
Right now, police said none of the victims from the three cases appear to be connected; the shootings seem to be random.
“Right now we don’t see a link. It is concerning to us someone would do these crimes in such a short period of time,” Nelson said.
“My main concern, other than my child, is that the people are caught so they can’t do it to somebody else,” Jackson said.
The FBI has been called to help enhance the video image of the car taken from the turnpike.
Anyone with information on any of the shootings is asked to contact Crimestoppers.
As for the teen’s condition, Quickle remains in intensive care.
He’s had numerous surgeries but will need even more.
A fund has been set up to help the family at First State Bank in Noble and Norman.
