Surge in Shootings has Some on Edge

Since Thursday three shootings have happened in Texoma. The first happened Thursday when a Montague County Sheriff's Deputy was shot. The recent crimes have some people on edge.

Annette Lathen spends her Sunday afternoon watching TV and looking over her grandbaby but  this Sunday is a little different. You can't see it on her face, but she's worried.

"I felt safe a lot of years but within the last couple of weeks or so you don't feel real safe when you hear about shootings in your own neighborhood," she said.

She lives diagonally across from a shooting that happened Friday night at Zoom Zoom Convenience Store off MLK Blvd. One person was shot and taken to the hospital.

"It's very alarming. I have kids," she said.

"This many in this short of a frequency, I've never seen it," said one gentleman who goes by the name Turk.

He visits bars around Scott Street and Sheppard Access Road an area Sunday morning that was covered with bright lights and police tape. One young man was taken the hospital, another died from a gun shot wound. Three days three people shot in Wichita Falls. One man said he feels the crime was going to hit home no matter what.

"There's shootings all over the United States and it got here," said George Jeffers.

The latest report from officials shows that they're still looking for the suspects. Still looking for the people who have some concerned about their safety in town.

If you have any information you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at 940-322-9888.
