ALTUS, Okla. (AP) - Police in southwestern Oklahoma say a 39-year-old man is dead following an early-morning shooting.

Authorities say the shooting occurred about 4:30 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex in Altus, about 118 miles (190 kilometers) southwest of Oklahoma City.

Altus Police Chief Tim Murphy says officers responded to reports of gunfire at the apartment complex and found the 39-year-old victim. His name wasn’t released and his body was transported to the state Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the cause of death.

Murphy says investigators have identified a person of interest in the shooting and are interviewing witnesses. No charges have been filed and the name and other details about the person of interest were not released.

Murphy did not immediately respond to a telephone call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
