OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police have released the name of the man killed as a result of a fight that started in southeast Oklahoma City early Saturday morning.

Twenty-three-year-old Wayne Oliver died in the shooting. Police said an argument broke out between people inside two cars in the 7-11 parking lot at S.E. 44th and Bryant.

One of the drivers took off and the other followed close behind.

Both stopped their cars again near I-240 and Bryant, where police said one person got out of the second car and fired shots into the first car hitting and killing the passenger.

Police said a witness, who was driving the vehicle that the victim was in, stated that while at I-240 and Bryant, a silver/green colored Chevy HHR/PT Cruiser-type vehicle pulled in front of them and stopped. The suspect, who was only described as a black man possibly wearing a hat and a long sleeved t-shirt, got out of his vehicle and fired into the victim's car.
