Claremore Police are asking for the public's assistance with any information regarding the robbery and murder of 22-year old Dakota Rex.

"In the early morning hours of May 16, 2017, three young black males entered a home at 609 South Maryland Avenue in Claremore. The suspects were armed with handguns and robbed the occupants of the home. Before leaving, the suspects shot and killed Rex. Investigators believe the people at this home were targeted for robbery instead of a random act," said CPD Deputy Chief Steve Cox.

He said investigators are continuing to pursue leads relating to the three black males believed to be responsible.

Anyone with information about this crime are encouraged to call the Claremore Police Department tip line at 918-283-8255. Callers can remain anonymous.

"We are offering a reward for information that leads to the successful prosecution of this crime," Cox said.
