Police responded to the Executive Inn Wednesday evening.

"Officers received a call that there was gunfire in the area, the victim was found on scene,” said Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Dillon Quirk. 

The victim, who has been identified as Isai Vera, was found inside a motel room and was rushed to the hospital. Despite lifesaving efforts police said he did not survive.

“Sadly, we’ve learned a short time ago the victim was pronounced deceased at the hospital,” said Quirk.

Police said the suspect who they later identified fled the scene in a vehicle with other unknown people after the shooting.      

Police have not determined a motive, but the suspect, a minor, has been arrested on a complaint of felony murder.

Police say the investigation is still in early stages.

“It’s still too early to determine what led up to the shooting,” said Quirk.   

Police officers and crime tape secured a second-floor motel room. Police said despite several rooms being occupied, and the motel's proximity to a busy interstate no one else was hurt.

“One victim was struck by gunfire,” said Quirk.                

Police said they are working to determine a description of the vehicle involved.
