Two separate killings are keeping Oklahoma City police busy looking for suspects.

Witnesses say dozens of people were inside a home at 833 E. Eubanks in northeast Oklahoma City when someone started shooting at the house around 7:40 p.m. That's when neighbors say people from inside the house ran out with guns aimed at the suspect car.

"It's something like a miniature war zone," witness Joey Brown said. "Almost every day since Friday, you hear gunshots. You kind of don't think anything of it."

Brown says he heard six continuous shots, Wednesday night, causing him to assume the suspect(s) used a revolver in the attack.

Neighbors are identifying the people living in the targeted home as gang members who just recently moved to the neighborhood. The victim has been identified as 40-year-old Santorrio Ramsey.

Police say the drive-by on Eubanks continued two blocks away to 3600 N. Lindsay, but no one at that location was injured.

Ten minutes later and 12 miles away, another shooting left one man dead and a second injured near Wilshire and Lyrewood in northwest Oklahoma City.

"It's Lyrewood… it's the ghetto," neighbor Jonathan Johnson said. "I don't like it here."

News 9 was on the scene of the Lyrewood drive-by as the surviving victim, Trivoil Morris, was being loaded into an ambulance. Morris expected to survive. Michael Ray Wilson, Jr., 27, was pronounced dead at the scene.

As of late Thursday, police were unsure if they were looking at one suspect per shooting or multiple suspects.


Right now, one person of interest is in custody and police are searching for one more near NW 113th and Western. Officers say less than an hour ago, they saw the two leaving the home where Wednesday night's deadly shooting  took place. When officers tried to stop the men they took off and led officers on a chase.
