OKLAHOMA CITY – Officials say an alleged drug dealer is charged with first degree murder in connection to a deadly shooting in southwest Oklahoma City.

On Oct. 19, around 6 a.m., police were called to reports of a shooting at the Southridge Manor Apartments in the 1120 block of S.W. 60th.

When officers arrived on scene they found two men critically wounded.

They were both transported to a local hospital where one of the men was pronounced dead.

The surviving victim told police that Nicholas Moody, 37, was responsible for the shooting.

Police say Moody became angry while he was inside the apartment and started shooting at the victims.

He then ran from the apartment and got into a red pickup and drove away.

Witnesses told officers that Moody was a drug dealer and allegedly supplied one of the victims with marijuana and methamphetamine.

Moody is charged with first degree murder and shooting with intent to kill.
