Three women are dead, and a man is recovering after a shooting Tuesday afternoon in east Norman, police said.

Police said some of the victims appear to be related, but how and who remained unclear at the time of an evening press conference.

No notes have been found inside the home regarding the incident, said Norman Police Capt. J.D. Younger. He said police are calling this a murder-suicide, but there were no signs of forced entry.

Police have no suspects in custody, nor are they searching for a suspect outside the incident, Younger said.

Younger said police received a 911 call from a male at 3:51 p.m. requesting an ambulance at the 1500 block of Oklahoma Avenue.

When police and an ambulance arrived on the scene Younger said the three female victims were dead, their bodies discovered separately throughout the house.

The male victim, whose cause of injury is unclear, was taken to Norman Regional Hospital, police said. The condition of the victim has not been released.

The weapon was recovered on the property, Younger said, but they have not released what that weapon is. Police said they are unsure if that was the only weapon used in the incident.

Younger said people besides the victims were present during the incident, but their involvement is uncertain.

He said the incident appeared to be domestic.

Younger said police did not know any more information at the time of the evening press conference, but he expects additional information will be released this morning.

The owner of the house is Joseph B. Link of Norman, according to records from the Cleveland County Assessor’s office.

Link, an ex-Marine Lt. Major, is legally blind and uses a guide dog and a cane, according to neighbors.

Link’s son operates a landscaping business behind the house.

Several neighbors said they heard screams and noises coming from the direction of Link’s house around 3:50 p.m.

“I heard screaming,” said neighbor Mike Fitzgerald, who lives six houses down from Link’s. “One long scream.”

Jon Rittenhouse, a neighbor of Link’s, said he saw medical personnel taking care of a person at the residence.

“I saw one guy sitting in the yard, talking and hysterical. He had blood all over his shirt and pants,” Rittenhouse said.

Neighbor Bob Broyles said the neighborhood usually was peaceful.

“I never heard a voice raised at that house,” he said. “They were a loving couple. Something really weird is going on.”
