Robert Brown was accidentally shot and killed during a family Thanksgiving celebration in Claremore, Okla.
“[Brown] was transported to the local hospital where he died,” Claremore Police Capt. Milburn Litterell told KRMG (video below). “We’re dealing with a lot of family members. It’s a terrible day.”
The alleged shooter's name has not been released. It's not known if Brown and the person who shot him were related, noted Tulsa World.
Even though the shooting is apparently an accident, the Claremore Police Department is investigating the possibility of a homicide.
"At this time the investigation is ongoing. It appears to be an accidental shooting, the investigation will be turned over to the attorney generals office to make a determination on where to go," Capt. Litterell told KJRH.
