Ardmore OKL Feb 15 2011 — Ardmore police have released photos of the man who died Wednesday night as the result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
“We are asking for help in trying to identify this person,” said Cpl. Chad Anthony, Ardmore Police Department Pubic Information Officer.
The photos of the man have been taken from security video footage just minutes before he shot himself in a restroom at Walmart.
In addition, investigators have released the following physical description of the victim:
◦White male, possibly in his 40s
◦6-feet 4-inches tall
◦Scar approximately 6.5 centimeter long, located 2 to 3-inches above his left ankle
“If you know this subject or if you think you know him call the Ardmore Police Department at (580) 223-1212 as soon as possible,” Anthony said.
Police were called to the local store about 8:30 p.m. after a store employee reported finding a man who appeared to have been shot in a restroom. The victim was taken to the local hospital and later airlifted to another medical facility. Chief Keith Mann said Thursday the victim died in flight and his body was returned to Ardmore. His remains were later sent to the state Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy.
Mann said the victim had no identification on his person at the time he was found. Continuous efforts to discover his identity remained unsuccessful Friday.
