Police said a man was shot near the Route 66 Inn. He was rushed to an area hospital where he died.

"My little girl said that she heard loud shots," said Timothy Bivins, who was staying at the motel.

Bivins said he was shocked when he woke up. "I was sleeping 'cause I just got off of work and my son woke me up, probably between 1:30 and 2 a.m., and he said, 'Dad we might have to leave.' And I said, ‘Why?' And he said, ‘There's been a shooting outside.'"

An employee at the front desk of the Route 66 Inn, who did not want to talk on camera, told News 9 that the victim had been a long-term guest at the motel, but checked out just three days ago and was not staying there anymore.

No one has been arrested in the case.

In Midwest City, police were busy with another deadly shooting. Midwest City police officers responded to a house at Post Road and Caton Place after reports of gunfire. Chief Brandon Clabes says one victim was dead when officers arrived. No one else was at the house where the shooting happened.

Neighbors said there were several police on the scene for hours overnight. Clabes would not comment on the victim's identity and would not say if anyone was in custody.

Anyone with information on either of these homicides should call police.

A third person was also shot and killed Saturday morning at an apartment complex in Norman.
