Woman shot at Charlotte Hall Park in Ardmore
ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - Ardmore police say the 20-year-old woman shot at Charlotte Hall Park Tuesday afternoon was an innocent bystander.
Police say two people were at the park to buy marijuana when they got into an argument. They say one of them fired a gun twice into the air before both took off running.
Police say they saw 19-year-old Gabreon Noland running from the park and arrested him on a charge of unlawful carry of a firearm, but say he is not the one who fired the gun.
The other suspect ran eastward down Locust Drive NW. While getting away, the suspect fired the gun 4 more times back towards the park.
Three of the bullets hit the uninvolved victim’s car. Two hit her tire, and one hit her in her back. She was taken to a local hospital before being flown to another out of the area. She was last listed in stable condition.
The other bullet shattered the window of the car used in the drug deal.
Ardmore Police Capt. Claude Henry said this type of crime is unusual for the neighborhood.
“We don’t have an extensive call history at that park,” Henry said. “There are times when we deal with people there but not to this extent.
Henry said Ardmore police had an officer on the scene within minutes. Gabreon Noland was arrested that afternoon for unlawful possession of a gun. The other suspect has been identified, but police are still looking for him.
They say the shooting suspect was last seen running east on Locust Drive NW.
