A forensic artist worked with a Wagoner County veteran to create sketches of two men who shot him and left him for dead on Thanksgiving day.

Seventy-three-year-old Kenneth Payne was robbed and shot several times as he left a gun range on November 24. He is still recovering from the attack. The men stole a rare Mitchell Black Lightning .22 magnum rifle, along with three other weapons and a gun caddy.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation worked with Payne to create sketches of his attackers. One shows a possibly Hispanic man in his late 50s. He has a light complexion, stands approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds.

The second suspect appears to be in his mid-to-late 30s, and has dark, curly hair that brushes his shirt collar. He also stands approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

The OSBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspects. Anyone with information in this case is asked to contact the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017.
