OKC Police Search For Persons Of Interest Following Homicide Investigation

Saturday, January 22nd 2022, 10:40 pm


Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two people after a man was shot and killed in a southwest OKC neighborhood in early January.

It's been almost three weeks since the shooting and police have still not made any arrests.

It happened the morning of January 4th as police covered this neighborhood near SW 64th and May.

"It’s speechless," said John Winston, a neighbor. "You see stuff on the news about other shootings happening, but you never would think that it would happen this close to where you live."

John lives next door to where the shooting happened and woke up to a gunshot that night.

"I just kept looking out the window and about 15, 20 minutes later that’s when I saw CSI and at that point, I knew it was something severe," Winston said.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found 31-year-old Clarence Leamon Ollison outside a home shot multiple times. He was transported to a local hospital where he later died. Investigators say Ollison was involved in some type of confrontation before the shooting.

"There were a group of individuals burglarizing vehicles sporadically through this immediate area," said Dillon Quirk, Sgt. with OKC Police. "Our victim in the homicide actually confronted some person or persons in the area."

Surveillance video from that night shows one person looking into two cars in the driveway. A second person can be seen jumping a fence and running through a backyard.

Police believe these two are persons of interest and hope someone will be able to recognize them.

If you have any other information on this case, you're asked to call the homicide Tip-Line at 405-297-1200.
