Police are investigating a homicide in northeast Oklahoma City.

Around 1 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a shooting at the Lincoln Inn Express Hotel and Suites located at 5405 N. Lincoln Boulevard. Police say a family member of the victim called police after the shooting.

When police arrived, they found a man shot to death inside one of the hotel rooms. Attorney Tony Coleman says the victim was his client, 21-year-old Blayke Ladd. Coleman said Ladd was scheduled for an arraignment at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. Ladd never showed up because he was killed at the hotel. Ladd was going to turn 22 this Saturday.
