MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (KFOR) – The Midwest City Police Department (MWCPD) has identified the victim shot and killed on the Rose State College campus Monday.
An active shooter alert was issued just after noon Monday at Rose State College.
MWCPD says 30-year-old Brandon Morrissette shot and killed 20-year-old Robenie W. “RJ” Long Jr., who was walking out of the humanities building with Morrisette’s wife.
“The guy who got shot fell over, the girl she was screaming, another guy was kind of freaking out,” said Rose State student, Coy Radcliff.
Long was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers on campus quickly found and confronted Morrissette, who then surrendered and was arrested without incident.
He will be held for First Degree Murder as the investigation continues.
