Oklahoma City Police received several calls just after midnight about gunshots fired at the Motel 6 near Northwest Expressway and Rockwell. When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered an adult male victim deceased. Police said he appeared to have been shot to death.
Police confirmed that homicide detectives were called to the scene.

"When you hear a gun shot, you hit the floor. She didn't know what to do, so we just lied down until the shot stopped and prayed to God that we made it," Jackson said.
