NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Norman police are investigating the deaths of a man and a woman who were found shot at two different locations. Police say the shootings appear to be connected.
Norman police say officers responded to a shooting call at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. Once there, police found one man who had been shot multiple times. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.
Shortly afterward, Norman firefighters responded to a house fire about 5 miles away on West Lindsey Street, not far from the University of Oklahoma campus. Police say firefighters discovered a woman with multiple gunshot wounds dead in the home.
Authorities are searching for 55-year-old Michael Timothy Deffner, who is considered a person of interest in connection with the shootings.
