Colbert woman shoots man she met on online dating app in the foot

COLBERT, Okla. (KXII) - Police say a woman shot a man in the foot Tuesday afternoon in Colbert, but the two had only known each other for a few days.

Investigators say it all started when the pair met on a dating app.

"They met on some dating website and have been together for the last two to three days," Colbert police chief David Petersen said.

Petersen said the two barely know each other, and that they met less than a week ago.

Police got a call to check out a domestic case just before noon on Tuesday, and arrived to find a gun laying on the kitchen island.

"The female shot the male in the foot and she was arrested and taken to Bryan County jail," Petersen said.

The man involved was taken to the hospital.

Petersen said they were both highly intoxicated.

A neighbor said that although the neighborhood is usually quiet, he's seen strange activity at that house before.

Police haven't released the names of the people involved, but they're working to find out which dating app brought the two together.

Colbert police say that the situation is still under investigation.
