ENID, Okla. — Enid Police Department is investigating a homicide that occurred Monday evening in the 400 block of West Walnut.

David Richard Wimmer, 43, was found dead inside a residence on Walnut after a 911 call reported a man needing medical attention.

Capt. Jack Morris said at 6:48 p.m. Monday the Enid and Garfield County 911 Center received a 911 call concerning a male subject who needed medical attention at a residence in the 400 block of West Walnut.

The caller told the operator the man was lying in a pool of blood. EPD officers, along with Enid Fire Department and Life EMS, responded to the call.
