Gunned down Oklahoma City mother of five, Brandi Alden name her alleged killer, as Dylan Wade Schwenk moments before dying in hospital. Mystery relationship with career criminal.
An Oklahoma mother of five named the man who fatally shot her just before she died at the hospital.
Brandi Alden, 38, of Oklahoma City was at her apartment when she was shot Thursday at about 10.25pm.
She was taken to the hospital where she named her alleged shooter — Dylan Wade Schwenk, 27 — to a patrol officer before she died, according to The Oklahoman.
Police then got a warrant to arrest Schwenk, also of Oklahoma City, based on complaints of first-degree murder, robbery with a firearm and felon in possession of a firearm. He was then arrested Friday afternoon following a foot chase with police.
Two witnesses to the shooting were said to have named Schwenk in the shooting, as well.
The witnesses claimed that he had run into Alden’s apartment, demanded that they give ‘it’ to him, before firing his gun. One of his bullets hit Alden, who was heard yelling, ‘No Dylan. Stop Dylan,’ according to police.
Police had previously said that the victim, Alden, was alone in her apartment when she answered her door after hearing a knock, at which point two men entered and shot her in the chest and arm, News On 6 reported.
The men were said to have driven away in a white SUV after the shooting.
What was the nature of Brandi Alden’s relationship to her alleged shooter, Dylan Wade Schwenk:
It’s unclear what Alden and Schwenk’s relationship was, although it was reported that they had been arrested together in the early morning of March 28, according to police.
They were said to have been in Alden’s car when she was stopped for having a faded paper tag. They were then taken into custody on active warrants, although it’s unclear what the warrants had been issued for.
Also not immediately clear is what Alden meant by the phrase, ‘give it to me’.
Court records obtained by The Oklahoman indicated Schwenk having a history of larceny and burglary charges, as well as additional felonies, and had been sentenced to five years in prison after being convicted of drug distribution in 2013.
Schwenk is being held without bond according to an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office records search. Police are still looking for the alleged other man in connection with the murder.
