On June 2nd at approximately 11:55p.m., Lubbock police officers responded to a report of an injured female in the 2700 block of East 2nd Street. Officers located Oden with life threatening injuries inside a vehicle parked at a residence. She was pronounced deceased at the scene shortly after midnight.

Officers were able to determine Oden was involved in a shooting that occurred in the 400 block of MLK Boulevard. Metropolitan Special Crimes Unit investigators arrived on scene to immediately begin an investigation.

Through the initial investigation it was determined a suspect fired multiple shots at the vehicle occupied by Oden and three others.
