“When police arrived, they located one victim in the front yard of this residence deceased from several gunshot wounds,” Quirk said.
“They initiated CPR immediately until emergency medical personnel arrived. However, unfortunately, the victim succumbed to his injuries and is deceased at this time,” said Sgt. Rob Robertson, Oklahoma City Police Department.

Police tell KFOR they’re not sure whether or not he has a connection to the area.
Neighbors tell us it’s usually a quiet street.
They were surprised to hear the gunshots nearby.
“I heard a quick succession of like a small-caliber pistol. Just like pop, pop, pop really fast,” said Jared Smith, who lives nearby. “I wasn’t really thinking much after I heard that. Adrenaline definitely spiked. I just kind of ducked just in case.”
Police are still working to learn what happened.
“Right now information is very limited,” Quirk said. “We don’t have a suspect in custody.”
