OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City police are searching for a suspect who robbed and shot a man Sunday night.

Police say the victim is 60-year-old Alfonso Lopez.
“The victim said he was at a convenience store. He had just purchased some items, walked back to his house and was actually about to walk into his house. That's when the unknown individual approached the victim, pointed a gun at him, demanded his wallet and then shot the victim and stole his wallet,” Morgan said.
Police said a neighbor heard the shots and ran outside, to see the suspect take off.
That neighbor then found Lopez under a carport suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest.
