OSBI helping investigate Cordell shooting

Team Radio Marketing Group - December 8, 2016 11:54 am

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.

Special agents spent all night interviewing individuals, collecting evidence, and documenting the scene. Special agents will present a comprehensive, written report to the district attorney. The district attorney will determine if the shooting was in self defense.
