Man Shot While Trying To Slow Down Speeding Car In Northeast OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY - Police say a man was shot Wednesday night near N.E. 44th Street and MLK while helping a woman who says she was attacked after yelling at a driver to slow down.
According to a police report, the woman had just left the Mayhem concert at the Zoo Amphitheater. She and a male friend were walking across the street when they saw a car speeding toward them.
The woman said she yelled at the driver to slow down, and that's when the car stopped and backed up to their location. She said the driver asked if they had something to say, and the woman replied she just wanted him to slow down.
The woman said the suspect got out of the car and punched her in the face. She said her male companion rushed to help her. She told police more people got out of the car and beat the man. One of the attackers then pulled out a gun and fired a shot. The bullet grazed the left side of the victim's head.
The suspects grabbed the woman's purse, got back in their car and drove away. Neither of the victims was seriously hurt.
The victim said all three suspects were black males between the ages of 30 and 40. One had a thin mustache and short afro. He was also wearing a dark colored, striped polo shirt and jeans. Another suspect had a shaved head and was wearing a red shirt that was too big.
The men drove away in a four-door, dark-colored car.
