Oklahoma City Police are searching for the suspect in a deadly shooting that took place late Thursday at Wheeler park near Interstate 40 and Western Avenue.

Police say the gunshots sent people running from the park.

Officers started getting calls about shots fired just before 10 p.m. Thursday.

Callers say they heard around 20 to 30 shots in total.

When police were investigating, they found several shell casings and a man dead in the parking lot.

Police describe the victim as a Hispanic man in his twenties.

A second shooting victim showed up at St. Anthony's Hospital and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Police said.

The second victim is a juvenile, and his name will not be released.

Officers also spoke to around three to four witnesses, police said.

"We are talking to some people who might have been in the park and said they heard the shots. But, we don't know if they witnessed any of the shooting," said Captain Rod Strecker from OKCPD.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Homicide Tip Line at 405-297-1111.
