(ELK CITY, Okla.) Early Sunday, the Elk City Police Department received a call of shots fired in the 400 block of North State. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a deceased female lying in the parking lot. During the course of their investigation, officers discovered her vehicle was missing. At approximately 6:30 p.m., officers from the Sayre, Okla. Police Department found the female victim’s car in the 100 block of West Sadler. Sayre officers contacted the Elk City Police Department to notify them the car had been located. Elk City detectives joined Sayre officers and together made entry into the house. Upon entering, they found a deceased male who appeared to be the victim of a homicide. They also discovered his truck was missing. After finding the second victim, the Sayre Police Department contacted the OSBI to assist with the investigation. The two homicides are connected and a person of interest was developed. A statewide “be on the lookout” was issued for the missing truck. Officers with the Tulsa Police Department pulled over the driver of the truck after midnight, at which point they took 49-year-old Gregory Killough into custody. Tulsa officers also found a handgun in the truck. OSBI agents and Elk City detectives are conducting interviews Monday and the investigation is ongoing. We would like to thank the Elk City Police Department, Sayre Police Department, Tulsa Police Department and the Beckham County Sheriff’s Office for their efforts investigating this case. It was a coordinated and collaborative effort across agencies and jurisdictions.
