OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City Police Department says an suspect has been identified and charged after two people were found shot dead in a car on Valentine’s Day, and they believe more suspects could have been involved.

On Feb. 14, 2022, Raymond Paddyaker and his girlfriend, Kayla Yates, were both found shot to death inside his car in the 3000 block of Northwest 10th Street.

“He was a good boy, a good son, and he loved me,” said Paddyaker’s mother, Winona Blossom in April. “It is so hard. Because I [never] dreamed I would be burying my child.”

Although officers detained one person at the scene and questioned others, no arrests were made – until now.

Officials say 51-year-old David Shatswell faces two counts of First Degree Murder for the deaths of Yates and Paddyaker.
