OKLAHOMA CITY (Free Press) — The Oklahoma City Police Department (OKCPD) is investigating two deaths from the weekend. Both were originally classified as homicides #26 and #27 by OKCPD. However, the department has since changed the classification of the knife fight victim from a homicide to what the PIO called a “suspicious death.” This death brought the official count for Oklahoma City to 26 so far this year.
Friday night, police were dispatched to the 9501 S. I-35 Service Road at 7:39 p.m. in response to a report of a shooting.
Once they arrived, they found Shearob Pittman (DOB 4-16-2003) who had been “shot inside an apartment,” according to a press release. Pittman was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
‘Suspicious death’ (formerly classified as Homicide #27)
Sunday evening at 7:57 p.m. police were called to check on a disturbance at 4511 S.E. 77th Street.
From what they learned after their arrival, responding officers believe that two people were “involved in a physical altercation.” During that fight a knife was used but police do not know who first produced it.
The two people involved were Davion Moore (32-years-old) and Shandale Cole (DOB 8-9-1975).
Both had injuries and were sent to a local hospital. Cole was pronounced dead at the hosptal.
Homicides #26 and the “suspicious death” are open investigations. No arrests have been made. OKCPD is asking anyone with any information to contact the Homicide Tip Line at 405/297-1200.
