To all Federal firearms licensees in Oklahoma:

On July 16, 1978, six employees of the Sirloin Stockade, 1620 S.W. 74th, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, were killed by individuals with firearms during a robbery.

Your assistance is requested in the investigation of this crime.

The victims were shot with Winchester-Western, caliber 38 Special, 158 grain, metal point ammunition. (Stock number W-38-S2P or 38-S2P).

As this is not a common round, it is important to law enforcement officials to know of possible sources for the ammunition.

A vehicle, described as 1972-73 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser Station Wagon, chalk green in color and in need of body repair, has been identified as being in the area at the time of the robbery and killing.

It is requested that anyone with knowledge of a possible source for the previously described ammunition or any knowledge of the previously described vehicle, call this number (405) 231-4841, collect.
