Police continue investigating overnight shooting

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla_Two suspects accused of gunning down a Lawton man and injuring his girlfriend early Monday morning remains at large.

Police said 47-year-old Darren Bush was shot and killed in his apartment near Northwest 13th and Cache Road just before 2 a.m. Witnesses said they saw him arguing with two men outside. Bush's girlfriend was also shot in the arm and has since been treated and released from a local hospital.

Police have not released the cause of the shooting but said it was sudden and unexpected. Police say the victims were shot from behind after they turned to go back inside their apartment after the argument between Bush and the two other men escalated.

An evidence glove left behind and torn crime scene tape are the only reminders of what happened at the apartment.

Captain Craig Akard said the couple living behind a convenience store was shot after they were seen talking then arguing with two men wearing black bandanas.

"The gentlemen knew who they were, they had a little conversation and it got a little heated, it turned into a confrontation and at that point the victims decided to go back inside the house and that's when they were shot."

Witnesses reported hearing several shots ring out before police arrived and found a bloody crime scene.

"There was a female there that had a gunshot wound to her arm and there was a male that was lying on the floor in the living room and they checked on him and he was unconscious."

The shooting happened at what appeared to be a vacant apartment complex which we were told was recently remodeled.
