A woman ran screaming from a home after a man was fatally shot Wednesday at Will Rogers Courts in southwest Oklahoma City, police and residents said.

Police responded to a shooting call about 11:15 a.m. in the 1700 block of Pettee Avenue near SW 15 and S Pennsylvania Avenue, Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.

They found Marquise Kyhief Callender, 22, dead inside an apartment. Callender's death is the 21st homicide of 2013 in Oklahoma City, Knight said.

Milisha Anderson and her cousin, Alicia Cotton, said a group of people ran from the apartment after the shooting, including a screaming woman.

“We saw people running out of the house, screaming frantically, saying they were going to kill us and stuff like that,” Anderson said. “The police came a few minutes later. They put the woman in the car and found out someone was dead.”

No arrests have been made and suspect information was not available Wednesday, Knight said.
