According to the second male, both men were here in Oklahoma on construction work. He said a black male came through an open door, pulled out a gun and told the men to get on the floor.

The second male said there was a confrontation between the victim and the suspect, which led to the victim being shot numerous times. The suspect was last seen fleeing the scene to an apartment complex to the west of the Super 8 Hotel.

Police said they were able to obtain a partial description of the suspect from multiple witnesses. The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 5'9", 140 pounds, wearing a type of scarf over his face.
