Moran is the city's 65th homicide of 2013. Walker said the victim had recently become homeless and had several contacts with police the two weeks before the shooting.

"He had been contacted by police, scrapping and dumpster-diving to make ends meet," Walker told News On 6 Anchor and Crime Reporter Lori Fullbright after the shooting.

"There was no evidence of criminal wrong doing. It was late, and he was out and about."

Anyone with information about Moran's murder is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or the Homicide Tip Line at 918-798-8477.
