A Lawton man is out of the hospital and in jail

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._The man who was shot by Lawton police Saturday night is out of the hospital and is now facing multiple felony and misdemeanor charges.

Duffy Ahhaity has been accused of kidnapping Craig Tanner in his own home in northwest Lawton. Court documents have revealed that when police arrived on scene, Ahhaity tried to escape to the backyard out of a window. When police confronted him they said he appeared to be holding a shotgun. Police shot Ahhaity in the chest after he refused to lower his weapon and aimed it at officers. What police thought was a shotgun turned out to be a paint ball rifle resembling a pump action shotgun.

Ahhaity is facing charges of kidnapping, possession of an imitation firearm after former felony conviction and threat to perform an act of violence. If convicted of all the crimes, Ahhaity is facing up to thirty years in prison.
