The shooting took place about 6 a.m. Saturday on East 11th Street.

Officers say the victim was unloading dough from the trailer of a semi-truck when his partner, who was inside the restaurant, heard a loud crash.

A delivery partner found the victim on the ground with two gunshot wounds to the chest.

The victim is 53-year-old Robert Horton. He is from Arlington, Texas. The crew had driven from Texas and was making deliveries in Oklahoma.
