OKLAHOMA CITY -

A confrontation at a northwest Oklahoma City gas station over the weekend turned deadly.

On Monday, Oklahoma City police released the names of the two men reportedly involved.

According to police, 39-year-old Travis Standard was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center on a second-degree murder complaint.

Police said the accused of fatally shooting 44-year-old Timothy Satterfield. Police said the two knew each other, and the fight was reportedly over drugs and the Satterfield's ex-wife. 

Officers were called to a shooting on Friday night at the 7-Eleven on the corner of NW 10th and May Avenue.  

A witness told News 9 the following day, they saw a confrontation break out in the parking lot between Satterfield and the Standard.

“I couldn’t tell exactly what he was hitting, but he started swinging multiple times at something,” the witness told News 9.

Police said Satterfield attacked the other man with a stick. The violence escalated when a gun was brought into the fight.

“The suspect pulled out a pistol and basically shot the person to death,” said Master Sgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department. “He fled the scene. He returned a short time later where he was placed under arrest by investigators.”

Homicide investigators learned during questioning that Standard was dating the victim's ex-wife.

“It looks like the two people involved in this altercation knew each other,” said Knight. “There was some type of history there.”

Police said Satterfield died at the scene.

Witnesses said it was not unusual to hear gunshots in the are of the gas station, but hope to never again see the violence turn deadly.

“I was just terrified,” the witness said. “That’s all I could say, really horrible, really horrible.”
