CORDELL — Wednesday evening, the Cordell Police Department requested the assistance of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation with a homicide that occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m. at 1302 N. Grant Street.

Just outside the house at that location, 78-year-old Roy Lee Weeaks, of Colorado, was shot. He was transported to a local hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.

Special agents have learned Weeaks got into a verbal altercation with another person inside the house. Weeaks was told to leave the property. Both Weeaks and the shooter produced firearms. The shooter fired one shot, killing Weeaks.
