On Wednesday Muldrow police were trying to get an arrest warrant for a 26-year-old former resident who allegedly shot a Muldrow man on Tuesday evening.
Muldrow Police Chief George Lawson said the shooting victim, David Owens, 38, told investigators that the shooting was the result of a “drug deal gone bad, and that a black male by the name of Tracy had shot him. Through a witness statement, the suspect has been identified as Tracy Jones, 26.”
Lawson said Jones should be considered armed and dangerous.
He reported Owens was transported to Sparks Regional Medical Center by ambulance Tuesday evening with a gunshot to the chest. He is expected to recover, Lawson said, but the bullet was still lodged in Owens’ back. Doctors were expected to evaluate the wound on Wednesday to determine if the slug should be removed or not. Since police don’t have the bullet, it is not known what type of gun the suspect used.
Muldrow police ask that anyone who knows the whereabouts of Jones to please call the police department at 918-427-4431.
The shooting occurred at about 5:11 p.m. Tuesday at 109 SW 9th St. in Muldrow.
