An Oklahoma City man was arrested on complaints of shooting with intent to kill and assault with a deadly weapon after his sister's ex-boyfriend was shot, police said.

Robert Wayne Collins, 29, smelled of alcohol and said he had “a little” to drink when he was arrested, according to the police report.

The victim called police about 2:40 a.m. Sunday from SW 86 and Pennsylvania Avenue and reported he had been shot.

An officer found the man sitting in the driver's seat of a Yellow Cab minivan that had a bullet hole in the windshield. The man told the officer he was invited by his ex-girlfriend to come to her house at the 1400 block of SW 86. When he arrived, her brother came out of the house and yelled, “Do you want to die, (expletive)?” according to the report.

The victim said Collins walked to the front of the vehicle and fired a single round, which hit him in the shoulder. The man was taken to OU Medical Center, according to the report.

Police found Collins nearby and took him to the Oklahoma County jail. He bailed out later that day, jail officials said Monday.
