Lawton police officer, teenager wounded in shooting

LAWTON, Okla. - A Lawton police officer was shot in the hand Tuesday night in a shooting with an unidentified 19-year-old man, who was also hit. It happened on the corner of Pershing and Elm just before 7 pm. Lawton Police Chief Ronnie Smith says Lieutenant Robert Puccino is out of the hospital.

It all started when callers told police a man was walking down the road in camouflage attire, carrying a rifle. Chief Smith says two patrol cars got there and officers told the man to lower his weapon.

"Told him to get on the ground and drop the rifle. The next thing we know there's a shootout. The suspect is shot and one of my officer's Lieutenant Robert Puccino is shot in the hand," said Chief Smith.

Shots were then fired but as for who fired first, they don't yet know.

Smith says the suspect was hit more than once but we are not being told where, just that he went to the hospital.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is handling the case since this is an officer- involved shooting.
