OKLAHOMA CITY — A 75-year-old Oklahoma City man died from gunshot wounds on Thanksgiving Day in a local business.
Wayne Zettlemoyer was pronouced dead at the scene of what appeared to be a robbery attempt at 6201 N.W. Expressway around 11:00 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 24.
He was shot by 42-year-old James Palmer who was working as armed security at the business.
Oklahoma City Police believe that Zettlemoyer entered the business and produced what appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun, pointing it at the security guard.
The guard then shot Zettlemoyer.
Police found that the gun Zettlemoyer was carrying was a BB gun that looked like a full-sized handgun.
Palmer, the guard, was not taken into custody.
The investigation is still in the early stages.
