OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City police are searching for suspects after a man, whom neighbors described as wheelchair-reliant, was shot to death in southwest Oklahoma City on Wednesday evening.
The deadly shooting occurred at around 5:15 p.m. at an apartment complex in the area of Southwest 59th and May Avenue, according to police.
The victim, a yet-to-be-identified man, was killed in his apartment.
Two apartment complex residents who spoke with KFOR described the victim as being wheelchair-reliant.
“He was a friend of mine. I’ve served dinner with him. Sit out and talked with him. Just chilled. We all try to be friendly and neighborly around here,” said Kenneth Gaffney. “Kinda bewildered that something like this would happen to somebody that, you know, I had just saw him sitting down there earlier today sitting outside his apartment in his wheelchair, just sitting out enjoying the weather.
“When you could kill somebody in a wheelchair, I mean what is it coming to?”
James Ivy said the shooting should not have happened.
“That guy was riding around in a wheelchair bothering nobody. I never thought it was going to happen. Should not have happened,” Ivy said.
An Oklahoma City Police Department official told KFOR that officers are searching for two possible male suspects.
This is a developing situation. More information will be provided once available.
