MUSTANG, Oklahoma – Police arrived at the home of Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan and his wife, Becky, within minutes of getting two 9-1-1 calls Tuesday night. The first call reported a break-in, but was cut off. The second call reported a shooting had just occurred.

This is the home Nichols Hills fire Chief Keith Bryan shared with his wife Becky.

The Mustang Police chief confirmed both calls came from Becky Bryan's cell phone.

She reported a man walked through an unlocked garage door around ten o'clock Tuesday night and shot her husband point blank in the head as he was sitting in the living room watching TV.

She said the man then turned to her and said "I'm sorry but he should have given me the job," and then walked out and drove off before police could arrive.

"For this community, this is a safe neighborhood," said Mustang Police Chief Chuck Foley. "This is a rare occurrence."

Investigators are wondering if this shooting was intentional or a case of mistaken identity.

The Mustang police chief confirms they have alerted all the fire chiefs in the metro to take their own personal protection precautions because Chief Bryan of the Nichols Hills Fire Department may or may not have been the intended target.

Oklahoma City Fire Department chiefs have been specifically contacted since their fire chief is named Keith Bryant and reportedly lives near the Bryan residence.
