Bixby police have identified the two people involved in a murder-suicide at a Bixby shopping center Friday night.
Jin Yu Wang, a Bixby resident and owner of a local spa, was leaving a business located near 131st Street and Memorial Drive around 8:30 p.m. with an acquaintance when Vincenzo Rocchio drove up in a vehicle, blocking the pair from leaving.
Police say Yu Wang and Rocchio had a prior relationship.
Surveillance footage from a nearby security camera showed Yu Wang getting out of her vehicle and into an argument with Rocchio. During the argument, Rocchio produced a weapon and shot Yu Wang. Rocchio then turned the gun on himself and fired. Both were dead at the scene.
