Local

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Officials say one person is dead following a shooting in northwest Oklahoma City.

Shortly after 6 a.m. on Friday, Oklahoma City police were called to a reported drive-by shooting near N.W. 28th and Independence. 

It was a shocking wake up call for those who live nearby. 

“Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of things going on here, speeding and stuff like that but nothing this drastic,” said Don, a resident. “First, I thought maybe somebody got hit by a car … cause of all the speeding on this street.”

Initial reports indicated that someone in a truck drove up and shot a man on a bicycle in the back.

“They learned that a male victim who had been riding a bike got into some sort of altercation possibly with somebody driving a white pickup truck,” said Capt. Jeff Spruill, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
