OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are investigating an early morning shooting that left one man dead.
Cameron Polk, only 20 years old, was shot in the head at point-blank range after opening the front door.
It happened near 21st and Tulsa Ave. around 3:40 Saturday morning while Polk was visiting a friend.
His friends tell us Polk had his entire life ahead of him.
Polk’s friend, who only wants us to refer to him as “D” says, “He has a baby and he has another one on the way. He’s 20 years old. 20 years old.”
“D” says they were just hanging out, making music and planning a spontaneous trip to Texas early Saturday morning when they heard a knock at the door.
Polk went to answer.
“He opened the door and I heard he bear hugged the dude,” says “D”. “Then the dude just started shooting.”
“D” says he came to help but it was too late. Polk was dying in front of him.
“I didn’t want to leave him but I didn’t want to be here at the time,” says “D”. “I didn’t want to see my brother like that.”
Before he left he says he bent down touched his face one last time and said I love you.
Doubled over, “D” says Polk is leaving a big and loving family behind.
“It hurt seeing his momma crying and his grandma praying for me. It hurts,” says “D”. “”He’s 20 and since he was 15 he took care of his family. His momma his brother he got a child. He did so much. He was in and out of the system in trouble but he did so much good.”
He says he has an idea of who did this and why but says it wasn’t worth it.
“They see us getting too much money,” says “D”. “That yellow Camaro that was out here that was his so like it’s the fact that he’s getting money they don’t like it and they don’t like us. So they did what they did.”
But instead of handling it themselves, “D” says they’ll leave it to the authorities.
Their main concern now is dealing with the pain.
“D” says, “If we retaliate I don’t want them to feel the pain that I felt because it hurts.”
Police do not have a suspect description.
