OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City Police Department continues its search for the suspect(s) in an Oct. 4 drive-by shooting that killed a 9-year-old boy.
Around 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, emergency crews were called to a reported drive-by shooting near S.E. 47th St. and East Ave.
When officers arrived at the scene, they learned that a child had been shot.
Sadly, that child – identified as 9-year-old Dumarcus Fuller, Jr. – died from his injuries.
Detectives say the boy was likely hit by a stray bullet from the drive-by shooting.
“They’re all bad, but when you have a child involved, it’s especially hard on the officers,” said Sgt. Rob Robertson, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Investigators believe it was a targeted attack on the residence.
However, a suspect has still not yet been identified.
“In spite of numerous hours of detective work, no arrests have been made,” said the department on Facebook.
