OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities have released new details in a fatal southwest Oklahoma City shooting.

At around 6 p.m. Sunday, police responded to the area near SW 36th and Western in reference to a disturbance call.

When police arrived, they found a man who appeared to have been shot to death.

The victim was identified as 43-year-old Shane Bonitz, of Oklahoma City.

According to police, investigators learned that 68-year-old Gerald Guinn, of Oklahoma City, and Bonitz were involved in a “heated argument” that “continued to escalate.” Police accuse Guinn of shooting Bonitz, killing him.

Guinn was arrested on a complaint of possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony.

Oklahoma City police say the district attorney’s office will determine if any charges will be filed in Bonitz’s death.
