Shooting Results in Schools Going on Lockdown

Posted: Updated:

CADDO COUNTY, Okla_One man is in the hospital and four others are in custody after a shooting on the north end of Cyril Wednesday afternoon.

The crime put many on alert as the suspects traveled from Cyril to Apache, which resulted in Apache schools going on lockdown.

Caddo County Sheriff Gene Cain said it was an argument gone sour that resulted in the man being shot.

"When they arrived they found there had been one subject shot and had a leg wound. He was later transferred to the University Hospital in Oklahoma City, " said Cain.

Witnesses said after the incident the 4 men fled in a vehicle towards Apache.

"The victim was able to give a description of a car, and about 40 minutes later the car was stopped over by Apache with 4 subjects in it, " Cain said.

Apache Police notified the superintendent of schools, Paula Squires, that there had been a shooting in the area, so as a safety precaution she had all of her schools go on lockdown.

Squires said the roadblock where they captured the suspects was so close to the high school they could see it from a window.

Although the suspects were close both Squires and the Sheriff agree the public was never in danger.

"I don't believe so. Here in Cyril it happened so quick, they fled in such a hurry. At Apache they were under control and had them in custody in a short time, and I don't believe anybody over there would've been in danger at that time, " Cain said.

Superintendent of Boone-Apache Public Schools, Paula Squires, said that parents were notified of the lock downs today through their "School Reach" messaging system. She said the lockdowns were only a safety precaution and were given the all clear in time to proceed with a normal release.

The four suspects remain in custody. The Caddo County Sheriff's Department is interviewing witnesses and said the investigation is still underway. The victim is expected to recover.
