OSBI Investigates Lawton Police-Involved Shooting
Sunday morning the Lawton Police Department requested OSBI agents work a police involved shooting at 2705 N.W. Sheridan. At the club Gate 4 Recovery Room. Approximately 1:45 a.m. officers heard a gunshot coming from the parking lot outside the club. About 300 people had gathered in the club parking lot. As officers approached the man they believed fired the shot, they commanded him to drop his weapon. According to the officer who fired his gun, the subject raised his weapon toward the group of bystanders. The officer then fired one round missing the subject. The bullet hit a parked vehicle next to the subject, traveled through several windows, and ultimately hit Jerry Ann Short in the chest. The 24-year-old Lawton woman was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released. The subject fled the area. Agents spent the night collecting evidence, interviewing many of the people who witnessed the shooting, and interviewing officers at the scene. Once the OSBI investigation is complete, agents will provide the district attorney a comprehensive, written report. The district attorney will determine if the shooting was justified.

Okla. Senator says tornado aid should be paid for
May 21, 2013 14:50 GMT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Conservative Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn says that any additional federal aid to help tornado victims and to rebuild devastated areas of his state should be financed with cuts to other programs in the government's $3.6 trillion budget.
Spokesman John Hart says it's a position Coburn has consistently held regarding federal spending on disasters dating to the 1995 bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City.
But federal disaster aid such as $60 billion passed earlier this year to rebuild coastal states including New York and New Jersey from Superstorm Sandy typically is approved as "emergency" spending that is simply added to the budget deficit. That may happen again if more aid is need for Oklahoma.
Federal disaster aid coffers remain flush from the infusion of Sandy aid.
