August has most homicides of any month this year in OKC

After a particularly bloody weekend, August has become Oklahoma City's deadliest month so far this year in terms of homicides.

Oklahoma City police have reported 11 homicides so far this month. Four of those deaths occurred between Friday night and Sunday morning.

The city's homicide count for the year now stands at 53, which is one less than the city's homicide count at this time last year. In 2015, Oklahoma City ended the year with 89 homicides.

Three of the four victims who were killed since Friday in Oklahoma City were shot to death, and police were looking for their killers Monday.

Late Friday night, officers found Tyrone Lee Clay Jr., 28, shot to death in an apartment complex parking lot in the 4200 block of SE 53. Early Saturday morning, someone shot Greg Hill, 52, at an apartment complex near NE 26 and Lindsey Avenue. Hill was taken to a hospital, where he later was pronounced dead. Early Sunday, someone shot David Weideman, 28, in the 2400 block of NW 32. He also was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police said the fourth victim who died over the weekend, Geneva Gomez, 33, was killed in an assault at 1529 N McKinley. Police arrested her mother, Juanita Gomez, 50, on a murder complaint.

The Oklahoma City homicide victims who died this year have ranged in age from 3 weeks old to 82 years old. Nine of the victims were female and 44 were male. Two of the victims were Asian, 27 were black, 12 were Hispanic and 11 were white. The race of one of the victims was not available.
