A teenager who was shot at a home in southwest Oklahoma City, has died from his injuries a week later.

According to police, on Tuesday, May 24, family members called police after finding 45-year-old Pedro Banuelas and his son, 14-year-old Ricardo Banuelas, shot at a home in the 3100 block of S. Shartel.

Pedro Banuelas was pronounced dead at the hospital, and the teenager was transported to the hospital in “grave” condition.

On Tuesday, May 31, police told News 9 that the teen has passed away as a result of his injuries.

No arrests have been made at this time. If you have any information, call the homicide tip-line at (405)-297-1200.

The teenager's death is Oklahoma City’s 31st homicide of 2016, according to police. 

“This is a case where we’ve got two people, the only two people who were in the house other than the suspects and they’re both now deceased,” Msgt. Gary Knight said.

A detective was at the scene a week later talking to the 14-year-old boy’s older brother. They went inside the home where the detective says it is still a mess stained with blood. He said there were no signs of forced entry and so far no witnesses have come forward.
