Wichita Falls Police Investigate Murder

Shooting murder in Wichita Falls

Wichita Falls Police are investigating a murder that occurred shortly after 9:00 pm last night (July 3) on the 700 block of Bonner – 1 block south of the police department on Flood St.

24-year-old Oliver Mercedes Martin was transported to United Regional Health Care emergency room and died as a result of a gunshot wound.

The Criminal Investigations Section and Crime Scene Technicians were called to the scene last night and are still processing evidence this morning. The crime scene appears to be located in two areas along Harding and Bonner which has resulted in police closing roads.

Sergeant John Spragins says that preliminary investigation reveals that Martin may have been shot while in a vehicle which was traveling on Harding. The vehicle then traveled north on Cleveland and stopped at the intersection of Cleveland and Bonner.

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
