OKLAHOMA CITY - Police have identified the woman who was fatally shot Thursday at 324 NE 63.

Vanasa R. Swaissi, 25, was found by police near a white car which was running around 4:20 p.m.

OCPD Homicide detectives believe the victim was shot by two robbers after giving them a ride from an unknown location.

Swaissi also had a female friend inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting who managed to escape without being hurt.

The suspects were seen running away from the apartment complex just north west of the scene. Police are looking for two teenage black males, wearing white t-shirts and blue jeans.

Resident Denzel Stevenson and his sister, Cheyenne Stevenson, said they can't believe the woman was killed right in front of their home.

"It's never been like this," Denzel Stevenson.

Police reported the number of violent acts is steadily increasing.

In the month of July, six people have been killed in shootings across the metro, and 12 other people were shot, but survived.

"We see that every summer," Gayhart said. "It gets warm, people get out and things start happening."

Each summer, Oklahoma City police increase the number of officers on the streets because the increased number of violent crimes.

If you have any information on this crime please call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
