Police say the spree started when three men approached and tried to shoot a woman in her car at an apartment complex on north Macarthur. One of them pulled out a gun and fired a shot through her window. She was hit by flying glass, but wasn't seriously hurt.

Less than 20 minutes later police say another woman was kidnapped while walking home from a convenience store. She says she was robbed, shot, and then dumped out of the car on the Kilpatrick Turnpike near Council Road. She was hospitalized and is now recovering.

Finally, around 5:45, two men drove up to Bronson Quickle and his friend while they were walking to school near N.W. 16th Street and Meridian. The men demanded money, but the two teens didn't have any. The suspects shot Quickle, leaving him paralyzed. His friend was beaten but managed to run for help.

"It is concerning for us that we got someone that would be out doing this type of crime in such a short period of time in the same area," said Capt. Dexter Nelson with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Investigators were able to track down a surveillance picture of the vehicle they think was involved.  They believe it is a Dodge 2005 or newer model 4-door vehicle. 

The suspects are described as three black men and one black female all dressed in dark clothing the night of the crimes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
