Family members found a man dead Wednesday inside a northeast Oklahoma City home.

Police identified the victim as McQuallias Wright, 42. This is Oklahoma City's fifth homicide of 2013.

Police were called about 11:20 a.m. after a family member found Wright's body inside the home at 10325 NE 59, police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.

Wardlow said the victim suffered injuries consistent with homicide.

Family members who found the victim said he was shot in the back, said McShaunda Wright, a woman at the scene who said she is the victim's sister.

“At this point, I just know that somebody shot him. I have no idea who shot him,” McShaunda Wright said.

McQuallias Wright worked in construction and was not involved in gang activity, she said.

“We need some answers. If anybody know who did it, they need to come forward because he had kids and family that he left behind,” she said.

Police are waiting for the state medical examiner to determine the cause of death.

Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide tip line at 297-1200.
