OKLAHOMA – Police are desperately searching for a suspect in the murder of a Norman father.

Wednesday, authorities offered a reward in the case.

Police said Kenneth Keeling was an innocent bystander when he was shot and killed on his balcony.

Two suspects have been charged, but police are still looking for a third man wanted for the murder.

It was just before Christmas last year.

Kenneth stepped out of his apartment when the bullets started flying.

“He was just simply an innocent bystander on his balcony,” said Norman police spokesperson Sarah Jensen.

It happened at the Summerfield Village Apartments in the 900 block of East Lindsey.

Kenneth’s wife was inside the apartment and called 911.

Kenneth died at the hospital from a gunshot wound.

The memories still fresh, Jeannie Keeling is understandably emotional but she’s hoping someone has information on a third suspect, Tevin Kyreece Martin Hicks.

“I just want him to be caught. I want justice. I want to have closure, me and my mother-in-law, my kids,” Jeannie said.

“Officers have been working diligently to locate Tevin Hicks. He’s been identified as the main suspect,” Jensen said.

Police have arrested 19-year-old Anthony Mundell and 17-year-old Mathiaz Oropeza in connection with the murder.

Court records show Mundell said they were robbed at Summerfield Village apartments and returned with Hicks and Hicks’ gun to retaliate.

Kenneth was shot when the suspects were allegedly shooting at another group of people in the parking lot.

Police are asking for help to find him, not just because he’s dangerous but also for Jeannie, who wants the man accused of killing her husband brought to justice.

“If anybody does know where he’s at, please help us out, please,” Jeannie said.

If anyone has information on where Hicks might be, contact Norman Crime Stoppers immediately.

Norman police are offering a $1,000 reward in the case.
