SKIATOOK, Okla. - A victim of a Wednesday morning home invasion in Skiatook has died.
Skiatook police told 2NEWS that Ken Cooper, 83, died Saturday night from injuries sustained from a gunshot to the chest, after someone broke into his house around 2:15 that morning on the 800 block of North Buffalo in Skiatook.
Cooper managed to call 911 for help. He underwent surgery and was originally expected to make a full recovery from the wound.
There was no forced entry upon investigation and police believed Cooper may have let the suspect in.
Investigators said they are currently following leads and have a “couple of persons of interest.” No arrests have been made.
"At this point we got really good information and enough evidence we collected that we got two really good persons of interest at this point," Detective Jerry Bullard said.
Cooper's grandson Brandon James says his grandfather was a great man who loved everyone.
"Real friendly guy, wouldn't really tell you no. Wouldn't really ask you why. He was always there to help, anything no matter what...he never really had any enemies that I know of," James said.
James tells 2NEWS his family is offering a $10,000 reward to help find his grandfather's killer.
