April 24, 2023
Police say the shooting at Rose State College in Midwest City, Okla., appears to stem from a domestic dispute.

A 20-year-old student has been shot to death, and the alleged shooter is in custody after what police are calling a domestic incident at Rose State College in Midwest City, Okla.

The Associated Press reports that the fatal shooting took place Monday afternoon outside the community college's Humanities building.

Midwest City Police Chief Sid Porter said officers immediately responded and confronted the alleged shooter. He dropped his gun and was taken into custody. 

“At this time what it appears is this is some type of domestic-related incident,” Porter said.

Police identified the suspect as Brandon Morrissette, 30, who faces a first-degree murder charge.

Porter said the victim and Morrissette’s wife, who is also a student at Rose State College, were walking out of a building when they were confronted by the gunman. The victim, who police did not immediately identify, was pronounced dead on the scene.

A witness said he heard gunfire and saw a man hitting the ground, next to another man holding a gun and a woman who was trying to calm him down.
