NORMAN, Okla. - Police are investigating a "mysterious death" after a woman was found with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police said it happened Saturday morning in the 1800 block of Twisted Oaks Drive when police were called for a welfare check.

“They found an adult female, multiple gunshot wounds,” said Sarah Jenson, public information officer for Norman police.

Investigators are now looking for a person of interest, Charles Curtis "Kurt "Hornback.

“We believe he’s armed and dangerous, because we feel like he did potentially play a role in this crime,” Jensen said. “On top of that, he had a relationship with the woman that was killed.”

The landlord of the property said he lived at the home but the victim did not.

We spoke to a neighbor who lives just a few houses down.

“Very frightened, very afraid,” said Rea Bingham. “I slept with my lights on the other night, and I slept with the porch light on and I don’t have any weapons, so I have a hammer I keep by the door.”

Police wouldn't say why the case is being investigated as a "suspicious" death versus a "homicide."

They also said the victim hasn't been identified by a medical examiner yet.

Investigators said, if you see Hornback, don’t approach him and call police immediately.
