OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police are still on the hunt for suspects following a shooting that caused a scene of chaos and left one man dead on the southwest side.

Witnesses say the victim drove about a block away from where he was shot before crashing into a vehicle on S. Walker Avenue under Interstate 240.

During the height of the afternoon rush hour, Walker and the I-240 service road were shut down until the Medical Examiner's Office transported the victim away from the scene.

The shooting, which occurred before 3 p.m. Tuesday, resulted in a mangled vehicles and a crime scene one block long. Witnesses say what happened could have been a scene straight from an action-packed thriller, except this was no movie.

"[The car] fishtailed out of there and right in front of me," eyewitness George Patrick said. "It was over in just a matter of seconds.

That was after at least five gunshots were heard. The victim crashed into a disabled person's truck, according to witnesses.

"The driver door swung open, and I thought somebody was going to come flying out of it," said Patrick.

The man who called 911 agreed to speak with News 9, but did not want to go on camera out of fear that the killing could be gang-related.

"[I] saw two suspects running … across the street to an apartment complex," the 911 caller told News 9.

An extensive search from the ground and air focused on a neighborhood just north of I-240 and the Windsong Village apartment complex where police say the shooting took place.

Police have not released the victim's name.
