Bartlesville Police are asking the public to help in a murder investigation after a shooting victim was discovered early Sunday morning. Captain Jay Hastings said a 44-year-old man was found shot to death around 1:15 a.m. in the neighborhood of Oak Park.

His name has not been released pending family notification.

"Upon arrival, officers found a 44-year-old man deceased lying in the middle of the street. Apparently the man had been shot during the disturbance, and most of the subjects involved had already left the scene," Hastings said.
