Police said Cox is also a suspect in this case. He remains in the hospital Friday morning and is considered under arrest.

The other suspect, 21-year-old Russell Ermeling, fled the scene following the shooting. Police said Ermeling later turned himself into the Tecumseh Police Department. He has been booked into the Oklahoma County jail on one count of first-degree murder.

According to police, investigators learned that Jamison was at his home with his kids when Cox knocked on the door and was allowed into the home. Cox was followed in by Ermeling, who then pulled out a pistol.

Both suspects demanded money. At some point during the robbery, Jamison and Cox were both shot.

A third suspect, who is still unidentified, remains outstanding. Anyone with information should call the Homicide tip-line at (405)-297-1200.

Jamison's death is Oklahoma City's 10th homicide of 2015, according to police.
