OKLAHOMA CITY -

The victim of a fatal shooting in southwest Oklahoma City has been identified as Eduardo Perez-Pena, 22, of Oklahoma City.

Police found Perez-Pena in a car riddled with bullets near S.W. 23rd Street and Miller Avenue shortly after 9 a.m. Monday. As of late Monday, police were still searching for his killer. Police MSgt. Gary Knight says the crime scene did not immediately give officers solid clues.

"We're so early in the investigation, it's just hard to know much at this point," Knight said.

Several shell casings were found on the ground near the car. One bullet hole was seen in the windshield. Police were alerted of the crime by a neighbor who called 911.

"[The 911 call] came in as a possible shooting, and of course, that is what officers ultimately found when they got here," said Knight.

Detectives spent roughly three hours in the neighborhood before the car was towed away and Perez-Pena's body was transported to the Medical Examiner's Office. Neighbors would not go on camera Monday but told News 9 the killing makes them "scared and nervous."

Police had not released suspect information as of late Monday. If you have information on the crime, call the homicide tip line at 405-297-1200.
