Victim identified in deadly Bricktown hotel shooting

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Authorities have identified a man who was killed in a shooting at a Bricktown hotel.

Shortly before 4 a.m. on Wednesday, emergency crews were called to a reported shooting at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bricktown.

“We were in our room and the police were banging on the door,” said one guest who wanted to remain anonymous. “And we’ve got to be here for more days and so the continuing safety is a concern.” 

Investigators say that when they arrived at the hotel, there was a deceased victim in the hallway on the eighth floor.

Officials say the victim appeared to have been shot to death in what is believed to be a domestic altercation.

“At this time, it appears that it was a domestic related killing so that’s something that investigators are looking into, looking into the past between these two,” said MSgt. Knight. 

Authorities arrested 21-year-old Tyesha Long on a complaint of first-degree murder.

On Thursday, officials identified the victim as 55-year-old Ray Brown.

Review of blood testing in hotel quarantine launched after contamination risk identified


Finger-prick tests routinely used by people living with diabetes, including pregnant women who develop gestational diabetes, were used in the hotel quarantine system. Safer Care Victoria said it did not believe needles were used multiple times, but that the cartridges were touched by more than one person.

“Blood glucose level testing devices intended for use by one person were used across multiple residents,” the agency said in a statement.

Safer Care Victoria, created as part of government reforms to improve quality and safety in the public health system, said there was a low clinical risk of cross-contamination and exposure to blood-borne viruses including hepatitis B and C, and HIV. There is also the risk of the spread of the coronavirus.

Safer Care Victoria is in the process of contacting 243 people who had a blood glucose level test between March 29 and August 20, based on information in their health records.

Acting chief executive Associate Professor Ann Maree Keenan said the clinical risk was low.

“The health of past quarantine residents is our immediate concern, so arranging screening for them is our absolute priority,” she said.

“The clinical risk is low. But if you are at all worried you had this test – and we have not contacted you yet – please call us.

“Right now, we won’t be able to answer the many questions people will have about how this happened. Be assured that Safer Care Victoria is conducting a full review into how and why this device came to be in use.

“I hope that we will be able to bring peace of mind through getting people in for testing, and through the findings of our review.”

Anyone who underwent blood glucose testing in hotel quarantine can call the dedicated
patient line on 1800 356 061 (8am to 8pm, seven days a week). Interpreters are available on request.
