W.F. Police Investigating Deadly Shooting

Wichita Falls Police are investigating a deadly shooting near the corner of Sheppard Access Road and Scott Street. 22-year-old Rakim Hicks of Lawton was killed and a 24-year-old Wichita Falls man was taken to United Regional with non-life threatening injuries.

The call went out just after 3:00 am on Sunday morning. An officer who was on his way to the scene was flagged down by a person in a car stopped on Scott Street, a few hundred yards from the Krank It Karaoke Bar and Club 940. The car reportedly hit something in the road, forcing it to stop.

Inside the vehicle police found one man with injuries, he was taken to the hospital by ambulance. We're not sure at this time which victim was found in the car. 

A parking lot near the bar and a section of road near where the victim was found were marked off with crime scene tape. The owner of Krank It Karaoke said they were not open at the time of the shooting.
