The family of a metro man shot and killed three years ago continues to look for answers.

Oklahoma City police said on Wednesday that leads in the shooting that left four people hurt and one dead have gone cold. 

Police said someone opened fire in June 2021 into a crowd gathered in a parking lot at a southwest Oklahoma City apartment complex. Nobody has come forward with information to solve the case.

Residents near southwest 61st Street and Douglas Avenue told News 9 they often heard gunfire coming from this apartment complex. Three years ago, the gunfire turned deadly killing 28-year-old Larry McDowell.

“Nobody was fighting that I’m aware of, so we really don’t know what caused this person to start shooting into the group of people,” said Msgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department.

Police said three more victims, possibly four were hit by the gunfire but not seriously injured.

“Investigators have received information that a fourth person was possibly shot and simply did not report it,” said Knight. “Obviously, it’s somebody we want to talk to and see what they know.”

A neighbor told News 9 that the day after the shooting they saw someone jump into a car and leave the scene. Homicide investigators spoke to witnesses and followed up on tips.

“But still that has not delivered us a suspect,” said Knight.

With no suspect and an unknown motive, the case went cold. Police urge the public to report any tips related to the shooting even if it was something small.

“It might be the information that helps us solve this case,” said Knight. “Somebody knows who did this and what it was about.”

The number to call is the Homicide Tip Line at (405) 297-1200.
