OKLAHOMA CITY - A cousin of the mother and daughter who were shot at a northwest Oklahoma City restaurant talked to News 9 Thursday night.

Natalie Giles and her daughter, Niah, were shot by an 18 to 20-year-old white male at Louie's Bar & Grill while celebrating a birthday. The shooter was shot and killed by an armed civilian in the vicinity of the incident, Oklahoma City police have confirmed.

"I would like to request that your viewers lift them up in prayer and ask for God to help to heal them through this," Turner said.

"I would like to also thank the armed citizen who prevented very very much more loss of life and tragedy in this event," he said.

Turner said he did not know if the shooter knew his victims or whether the attack was random.
