MUSTANG, Oklahoma -- OSBI agents are back in the Mustang neighborhood where the Nichols Hills fire chief was gunned down. They are on the hunt for a lone gunman.

At the same time, Mustang police have released the 911 call made by Chief Keith Bryan's wife, Becky.

Listen to the 911 tape.

Investigators are canvassing Chief Bryan's neighborhood talking to neighbors and asking if they saw or heard anything.

They say this is very common, when the suspect information is so vague. Right now, all they have to go on is a white man, 20 to 30 years old and driving a dark colored vehicle.

The OSBI is also going through evidence that was collected at the home.

Family members said that investigators have the clothes Chief Bryan's wife was wearing at the time her husband was shot.

The OSBI is testing fingerprints and DNA. They say the results from those tests could take days to weeks.

"We take it back to our laboratory," said Jessica Brown with OSBI. "Our analysts look at it, determine what could be tested and what should be tested and then we start going through that process."

Wednesday, it was reported the killing may have been a case of mistaken identity and the Oklahoma City fire chief Keith Bryant may have been the intended target.

OSBI says at this time, they don't think anyone else is in danger.

Chief Bryan's wife is the only witness and has been ruled out as a suspect at this time. However, investigators say it is common to go back and question the witness several more times during an investigation.
