Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
ATOKA COUNTY, OK -- A man is in the Atoka County jail this evening facing five counts of attempted murder.
Tony Callicoat was arrested Wednesday night after he allegedly shot Henry Griffith Jr. outside his Bentley home.
Atoka County Sheriff, Gary McCool, said Griffith and Callicoat argued after Callicoat ran into Griffith with a four-wheeler. Griffith reportedly punched Callicoat who then got his rifle and shot at Griffith. Bullet fragments grazed the top of Griffith's head, and one hit his lip.
The sheriff says Callicoat then opened fire on the home where Griffith's wife and three children were hiding inside.
Griffith has been released from the hospital. No one else was hurt.
