While not an LODD, we regret to inform you of the tragic death of Nichols Hills, OK Fire Chief, Keith Bryan, who was shot and killed Tuesday night. Police responded to two 911 calls from Rebecca Bryan, the chief's wife, around 10 p.m. Tuesday night; the first from her cell phone and the second from the home landline. Police say Rebecca and Keith were awake when an intruder entered the chief's Mustang home through the open garage door. Authorities say Rebecca told them the male gunman yelled, "I'm sorry ma'am, he should have given me the f****** job," before fatally shooting the chief once in the head and fleeing the scene. Chief Bryan was transported to the hospital in critical condition where he later died. The Nichols Hills Assistant Fire Chief tells us his department hasn't hired or interviewed anyone for a job since 2007. Police are warning other city officials to be cautious, including Oklahoma City Fire Chief Keith Bryant who lives in the same area, because the intruder may have mistaken the two. The only description of the suspect authorities have at this point is a white male with blond hair between 20 and 30 years of age. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt and possibly driving a small pickup truck. Chief Bryan has a long history of service to the state of Oklahoma. Our sincere condolences to Chief Bryan’s family and the Nichols Hills, OK FD.
