Lawton family’s dog killed in drive-by shooting

LAWTON, OK (TNN) - A Lawton family's dog was killed in drive-by shooting.

7News spoke to the owner of the home; however, she did not want to be identified on camera.

“Especially in this type of neighborhood, I wouldn’t expect them... with all the cameras and security, I mean,” said the homeowner.

Shortly before four o’clock Friday morning Police were called to a home in the 2400 block of SW Oxford Dr.

“Our officers that responded to the scene were able to find about 10 to 15 to 20 bullet holes in the residence,” said Sgt. Timothy Jenkins, Public Information Officer with the Lawton Police Department.

No people were injured; however, Tiny, the family’s chihuahua mix, was inside her kennel when the house was sprayed by bullets.

“Who ever was shooting didn’t care anything about my family,” said the homeowner.

“A lot of animals to people are their family, are more than a pet to them,” said Sgt. Jenkins.

The homeowner says she’s not sure why this happened.

“I kind of spoke to someone my daughter was having an altercation with and they were like no we didn’t do it," said the homeowner. "So I don’t know if it’s someone they know or somebody that was involved in the altercation but that’s the only thing that was kind of hot.”

“Maybe somebody followed her home or maybe somebody has something against her," said Sgt. Jenkins. "That’s all part of our investigation stages but right now we are trying to looking into it trying to find out exactly who did this and why.”

As far as the investigation goes, Sgt. Jenkins says they have no persons of interest nor do police have a description of the suspect’s vehicle. Sgt. Jenkins says this cased will be assigned to a detective come Monday.
