Lawton Police Investigate Shooting

Lawton, Okla. - The Lawton Police Department is asking for help in a current investigation.

On Wednesday, August 26, Lawton police were called to the intersection of Sheridan Road and Gore Boulevard after shots were fired. Officers on the scene were told that a white Escalade and a maroon Dodge pickup were involved in a vehicle collision. They say it appears the Escalade hit the Dodge and both drivers got out of their vehicles.

The drivers started to argue and the driver of the Dodge, described as a white/Hispanic male, between 5'6" and 5'8" and heavy set, went back to his vehicle and grabbed a rifle.

The man who grabbed the rifle shot at the Escalade, but police don't believe anyone was hit. Both drivers got back into their vehicles and headed north on Sheridan Road.

Police recovered two spent shell casings and one live round of ammunition.

The driver of the Escalade, described only as a black male, has not contacted police.
