A man who police said tried to attack an older relative this morning with a computer monitor was shot by the older man in northeast Oklahoma City, police said.

Oscar Jerome Blakely, 30, of 828 NE 69, was taken to OU Medical Center after the 5 a.m. shooting, police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.

The older man, whose name was not released, was not hurt because Blakely "never made it," to him with the computer monitor, Knight said.

The shooting appears to have been in self-defense, Knight said.

"Anyone has the right to defend themselves," Knight said.

The man who fired the shot called police. When Blakely is released from the hospital he is expected to be jailed on complaints of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse, Knight said.

Knight would not say how the shooter was related to the man who was shot.

Blakely's wounds were not life-threatening, Knight said.
