CHICKASHA — Chickasha police and other law officers were investigating a double shooting Tuesday afternoon.
Police were called about 1:35 p.m. to 3417 S 25 St., on a report of a man having fatally shot his estranged wife. Officers found a woman dead and a man wounded in the home; both were shot, Chickasha police Maj. Elip Moore said.
The man was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
“Detectives are investigating the incident and it is too early in the investigation to say with any certainty exactly what happened,” Moore said. “This is a tragic situation, and we should keep this family in our prayers.”
The state medical examiner’s office will determine cause of death. The identities of the shooting victims will be released after next-of-kin notifications have been made, Moore said.
