    Police: Fatal shooting at Hobby Lobby in Oklahoma City

    March 2, 2023 GMT

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An employee at a Hobby Lobby distribution center shot and killed a manger at a distribution facility on Wednesday, Oklahoma City police said.

    The shooting happened about 5 p.m. near the company’s headquarters on the city’s southwest side, said police Sgt. Rob Robertson.

    “The suspect produced a firearm and shot the victim at least once,” Robertson said.

    A man who fled the scene in a red Dodge Challenger with a vehicle tag from the Muscogee Nation, a federally recognized tribe in Oklahoma, was not in custody early Wednesday evening, Robertson said.

    Hobby Lobby, a home decoration and arts and crafts store, has millions of square feet of manufacturing and distribution space at facilities in Oklahoma City, including its corporate headquarters.

    An after-hours message left with the company seeking comment on Wednesday was not immediately returned.
