Man shot, Altus police investigating

ALTUS, Okla._The Altus Police Department is investigating two shooting incidents, one of which involved a man being taken to an Oklahoma City hospital.

Altus police were called to a home on the 700 block of North Julian to investigate a shots fired call for the second time in two days.

The call came in around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday with the caller stating they heard gunfire in front of their home. No one was hurt, but witnesses did tell police they saw two black men shooting at each other. Police searched the area, but were unable to locate the suspects.

The second shooting investigation started with a call around 10:45 p.m. Wednesday on the 1100 block of West Davis. One man was taken to Jackson County Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg; he was later taken to a hospital in Oklahoma City.

The victim in the second shooting provided little information. He did, however, tell police he was walking along Davis Street when an unknown person appeared from behind him and started shooting. Police were able to recover shell casings from the area.

Three parked cars were damaged during the shooting on Davis Street.

Investigators will travel to Oklahoma City to re-interview the victim in hopes of learning more about the shooting. Police do not have any suspects at this time.

Altus police do believe that the recent shootings are gang related.

Altus police are encouraging anyone with information about these shootings to contact Altus / Jackson County Crime Stoppers at 580-482-8477 (TIPS). You can remain anonymous and you could be eligible for a cash reward.
