OKLAHOMA CITY(KFOR) – A Northwest Oklahoma City apartment complex filled with police lights Monday after a deadly shooting

“I’m kind of fearful,” said Oklahoma City resident Angela Miller. 

“If people are shooting and killing around here, then I need to do something different, I’m ready to go,” said Miller. 

Police say it started as some sort of argument between the victim, Kyriece Hardeman, and the suspect, Curtis Jones. 

At some point the argument escalated to gunfire and that’s when Hardeman was killed. 

“It’s unclear exactly what they were arguing about what let up to that but we do know that they were involved in some sort of argument or altercation,” said Msgt. Gary Knight with OKCPD.
