The victim of a fatal shooting at a northwest Oklahoma City parking lot tried to flee before being shot multiple times, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court.

Jasen Yousif, 29, was killed about 4:30 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of Target, 13924 N Pennsylvania Ave. David Bloebaum, 57, was arrested on a murder complaint shortly after the shooting.

Bloebaum confessed to police at the scene that he shot Yousif, according to the affidavit. He and Yousif were involved in a disturbance, which led Bloebaum to follow Yousif into the Target parking lot.

Yousif was shot multiple times, according to the affidavit.

Surveillance video shows Yousif fled from Bloebaum and then fell a short distance after being shot, the court document states. A knife was found at the crime scene.

A funeral for Yousif was held Tuesday.

Bloebaum is being held without bail in the Oklahoma County jail.
