A man killed in the shooting Sunday in Kansas City practiced medicine from 1976 to 2003 in Oklahoma, according to a family statement.

Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, 14, were among the three killed in a shooting at the Jewish Community Center in suburban Kansas City, Corporon's son, Will Corporon, said in the statement.

William Corporon practiced medicine in Marlow and Duncan before moving with his wife to the Kansas City area to be closer to his grandchildren, Will Corporon said.

“He was a well-loved physician in the Johnson County (Kan.) community, cherished his family and more than anything had a passion for caring for others,” Will Corporon said.

Both Reat and William Corporon were very proud supporters of the University of Oklahoma and its sports teams, Will Corporon said.
