LAWTON -- Police made two arrests in connection with homicides in the city only to find themselves with another death to probe.

A Wednesday afternoon shooting death outside a southeast Lawton home is being looked at as a homicide, police said, but they are not sure if it was an intentional shooting, the Lawton Constitution reports.
