Stacy said multiple suspects left the area after the shooting at Sooner Haven Apartments.
One victim died at an apartment and another at a hospital, Stacy said.
A cousin described the male victim as in his 20s and as a happy man who usually had a smile on his face and didn't mind helping people. The victim's father, Kermit Lottie, was too devastated to speak and did not give his son's name.
A positive identification could not be verified for either victim early Friday.
Numerous relatives and friends gathered and mourned outside of the shooting scene.
“These apartments alone is hell,” said Lena Henderson, who said she is the victim's cousin.
A resident who has lived at the complex for four years said shots being fired are a regular occurrence. He won't let his children play outside. Others confirmed that violence is a problem in the neighborhood. One man who lived nearby laughed when asked if gunfire is commonplace.
“It's like the 4th of July every day,” said the resident, who declined to be named.
