Police said a man is dead and his mother is in critical condition after a shootout with each other at an apartment complex in northwest Oklahoma City.

Authorities responded to a shooting call at approximately 5:30 p.m. at the Bennett Ridge Apartments located in the 8200 block of N. Rockwell Ave. where two victims were located.

Lt. Issac Goodman said the man died from his injuries and said the woman remains in critical condition at OU Medical. 

One witness told police an argument broke out before shots were fired. 

Police found the woman with gunshot wounds on the sidewalk near the parking lot. They said the male victim ran away before collapsing a building away.

“This is not a bad apartment complex. There is not a lot of problems here. This is somewhat of a domestic related family issue versus this being a crime-ridden area. That’s not the case here,” said Goodman. 

Both guns and all of the shell casings have been recovered.

Police hope to get more information from the mother once she wakes up. 

No names have been released at this time.
