TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities are investigating after a man was shot and killed outside a Tulsa motel.

The Tulsa World reports that witnesses said they heard gunfire Sunday evening before the man’s body was recovered outside the Tonight Inn & Suites in east Tulsa.

Authorities didn’t immediately identify the victim.

Tulsa Police Officer Con Ericsson said witnesses reported seeing a man in a green hoodie run from the front of the motel after hearing multiple gunshots. But Ericsson said police couldn’t be sure the man seen fleeing after the shooting was a suspect. Ericsson says the man could have been a frightened witness.

The World says the death is the city’s 54th homicide in 2013.
