Gunshot narrowly misses sleeping babies

LAWTON_ It was a close call for two Lawton babies early Saturday morning. Police say a man fired a bullet into their home and the shot came just six inches from hitting the girls while they were sleeping. It happened in the 1400 block of NW. Irwin Ave.

Police responded to the shooting and later tracked the gunman to a nearby home where he was arrested. Investigators say they also recovered the gun that was used. 21-year-old Dmitri Jackson is being held in the city jail on a complaint of shooting into a dwelling.

Court records show he was out on bond after being charged with robbing a Lawton convenience store and serving as the getaway driver in another convenience store robbery earlier this year.
