MOORE, Oklahoma -

Newly-released 911 calls detail the moments a man was shot and killed in Moore

On the call, the victim's pregnant girlfriend pleaded for help as she knew the shooters were still around the house. 

Moore police think five suspects were inside the home at the time of the shooting. The man killed was identified as Marquis Hawkins.

Woman: "My boyfriend just go shot, please come. Please help me."

The frantic 911 call was made just minutes after Hawkins was shot about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in his Moore home. 

911 dispatcher: "Who shot him?"

Hawkins’ girlfriend: "These guys came into our house and shot him. We live in the country. ... There was like four of them, and they just came in here and they shot him and left me on the ground."

Police said Hawkins was shot in the chest. 

Hawkins’ girlfriend: “I’m holding pressure to the wound.

The dispatcher then walked the victim's girlfriend through life saving measures.

Hawkins was taken to the hospital where he later died. Police said the suspects scattered into the wooded area surrounding the home after the shooting.

“They went all different directions,” Moore police Lt. Kyle Johnson said. “Some are adults and some are juveniles. Officers set up a perimeter of that area and in an attempt to start locating additional suspects."

Police caught two suspects who tried to run that night, a third turned themselves in.

“We do have reason to believe that there was some sort of disturbance that ensued at the residence and then the shooting occurred,” Johnson said. 

Anyone with information on shooting is asked to call Moore police at 405-793-5171.
