Lawton Investigation

Posted: Updated:

Lawton police are investigating a shooting that sent one woman to the hospital.

Lawton Police said it was the woman's husband who pulled the trigger.

Officers were called to a house near 7th Street and G Avenue around 3:00a.m. on Tuesday.

It was reported that a 34-year-old woman was shot in the shoulder.

When police arrived at the scene her husband was there.  Both of them told authorities it was an accident.

The husband claims he thought his wife was an intruder because they have been dealing with burglars.  He explained to police that he saw a shadowy figure standing in his bedroom so he fired his rifle before realizing it was his wife.

We're told she is being treated at Southwestern Medical Center.

The husband is at the police station for questioning.
