The shooter who was killed over the weekend in the parking lot of a club in the northwest of Oklahoma City was named by police on Monday.
Officers were called to 3000 W Memorial Road just before 2:20 a.m. on Sunday due to allegations of a shooting. When they arrived, they discovered Zyron Owens, 31, dead in the parking lot. After the incident, three additional people were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment, but authorities said their wounds weren’t life-threatening.
Authorities are looking into possible motives for the shooting as the four were exiting Monica’s Bar & Lounge.
Sgt. Dillon Quirk of the Oklahoma City Police Department said, “It doesn’t seem like a random act of violence.” Investigators are unsure whether there is a connection, although it may exist.
Late on Sunday morning, Dot Wo sent a statement to social media thanking locals “for your concern and phone calls,” but noting that the restaurant closed at 9 p.m., several hours before the incident.
The statement added, “We were not impacted by or associated in any way with the incident that occurred. “The press stories were false; the fights happened after Monicas Bar (closed), outside in the parking lot. We send our condolences and prayers to everyone impacted by this tragedy.
No suspects were being held, according to the police on Monday. Residents with information about the shooting were urged to contact the homicide tip line at 405-297-1200 of the police department.
