OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are investigating a homicide in southeast Oklahoma City.

Around 7:30 a.m., police were called to a homicide in the 5700 block of S.E. 48th.

Police said the public has no reason to fear however the victim died of “unnatural causes.”

“It’s senseless. It’s really senseless,” said a woman named Kisha, who lives in the area. “We should all be able to die of natural causes, not because someone wants us to die. It’s not fair.”

Two bullet holes mark the driver’s side window of a silver pickup truck, the vehicle in which officers found a man slumped over the steering wheel.

Residents gathered outside, watching the investigation, taking place in an area that’s usually busy with kids and adults walking to a nearby Walmart.

The crime scene encompassed the area in front of the leasing office, near the community’s mailboxes.

“You don’t know if you can walk to the store, if you can walk home,” Kisha said. “You don’t want your kids going outside. It’s ridiculous.”

Residents describe the area as quiet and generally peaceful, sitting adjacent to Tinker Air Force Base.

However, a fatal shooting occurred at the same Chapel Ridge apartments in March 2016.

Police do not have a suspect at this time but said the public is not in danger.

No other details have been released at this time.
