Owasso police are asking the public for help as they search for answers after a 21-year-old man was shot and killed in his apartment.

Officers said even after speaking with neighbors and people in the area, they don’t have a suspect in the deadly shooting.

The investigation started Monday night after a friend walked into 21-year-old Tyler Collins' apartment near 3rd and Main and found him with a gunshot wound to the head. Detectives said they do not believe it was a random shooting.

"But on the other end of the spectrum, we're still having trouble kind of tracking down exactly what happened," said Lt. Nick Boatman, Owasso Police.

“They too are wanting answers. We want answers, so we want people to come forward that know anything," said Owasso Lt. Nick Boatman.

He said at this point, police don't know why someone would have wanted to kill Collins.

"If anybody did visit that area that evening and then left the area we'd like to talk to them," said Boatman.
