A customer at a south Oklahoma City gun range chatted with other patrons and the crew before he was found shot to death Monday, the owner said.

Nijim Ghassan Dabbour, 25, of Oklahoma City, was found shot in the head about 5:25 p.m. Monday at H&H Shooting Sports, 400 S Vermont Ave., Oklahoma City police said Tuesday.

“We are aching for his family. We are aching for our family and our crew,” owner Miles Hall said Tuesday.

Hall said Dabbour had been to the shooting range before, and the crew noticed nothing out of the ordinary from him when he came in Monday.

“We're like everybody else — we are still trying to figure out what transpired with everything,” he said.

Dabbour was found slumped over in a shooting stall and was taken by paramedics to OU Medical Center, where he died, according to the police report.

Homicide detectives were at the scene, but the incident appears to be a suicide, police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.

Hall said nothing like this ever happened before in the 33 years the range has been in business.
