Oklahoma City police are asking for the public's help in finding a vehicle that might have been used in three attempted robberies and shootings last week.
Capt. Dexter Nelson said officers think three men and a woman were involved in May 8 shootings that left three people injured, including a teenager who was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot in the 4300 block of NW 16.
Nelson said police think the three incidents are connected, but it's unknown whether the shooters knew the victims.
“We believe all four suspects are involved in all three incidents,” he said.
Officers received the first shooting call about 2:45 a.m. May 8 at an apartment complex near NW 122 and N MacArthur Boulevard. A woman told police she was approached by a person with a gun who fired at her.
The woman was not hit by the gunfire, but she did suffer injuries from shattered glass, police said.
Shortly after, officers found another woman about 3 a.m. in the median of the John Kilpatrick Turnpike between N Council Road and N County Line Road. The woman had been shot and told officers she had been abducted, robbed and dropped out of the car.
Nelson said the last call was on NW 16 and involved at least two of the suspects. The victim, Bronson Quickle, 17, was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Police said he was waiting for a bus to Justice Alma Wilson SeeWorth Academy where he is a junior.
Police released a surveillance photo Thursday of a black Dodge vehicle on the Kilpatrick Turnpike that may have been used in the attempted robberies.
Nelson said investigators are working with FBI agents to enhance the photo in order to obtain the license plate number.
Quickle's mother, Tami Jackson, said Thursday that her son is awaiting back surgery and has been able to communicate with her by writing on a notepad.
She said she hopes the release of the surveillance photo will lead to an arrest.
“I hope they're caught so they can't do this to somebody else,” Jackson said. “I won't feel completely safe until they're off the streets.”
Anyone with information about the shootings or vehicle is asked to call Oklahoma City police at 235-7300.
