A spray of bullets fired at an occupied Meeker area house damaged a sliding glass door and two cars early Saturday.
Several adult and two juvenile occupants of the house, three miles west of Meeker on U.S. 62, reported no injuries at the scene, according to Lincoln County Sheriff's Office Undersheriff Chester Duncan.
LanceBriggs, a resident at the home, had been assaulted and thrown into a fire during an altercation a few months ago in Shawnee, Duncan said.
The undersheriff said his office is investigating whether or not there is a connection between the earlier altercation and Saturday's drive-by shooting.
Deputies at the scene discovered that bullets or fragments of a bullet shattered the sliding glass door on the home and two bullets struck each of the two vehicles parked in front of the house.
"At least five rounds were fired," Duncan said. "We have some suspects, but (the residents) didn't get a vehicle description."
The undersheriff said the shooters fired the rounds at the home from the highway.
Several families were inside the house, including at least two small children.
No one was outside the home, Duncan said.
Deputies Dale McNelly and Clarence Gibson responded to the scene from the area of U.S. 62 and U.S. 177 -- three miles from the shooting scene.
Like attracts like. I am especially fond of his rant with the female police officer. Often, the men who abuse women are somewhat afraid to take on another another male. It is easier for them to pick on someone they can control who is defenseless against them. Guess Lance got cocky and hit a guy with a beer bottle and months later... surprise surprise! Revenge seems to work for some people I guess. Those who are violated usually remember their perpetrator. Oh well. So much for being a good law abiding citizen. Violence begets violence.ReplyDelete
