Two Killed During I-40 Shooting Spree West Of Oklahoma City
CUSTER COUNTY, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says two people are dead after a driver started shooting at other vehicles while driving on Interstate-40 west of Oklahoma City early Thursday.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol eventually stopped and arrested the suspect in Custer County, but not before he had shot and killed a man near El Reno and killed a woman near Weatherford.
The OSBI says just after midnight, the suspect was driving west on I-40 and ran a man and woman off the highway. The man was then shot and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A short time later, near Weatherford, authorities say a woman was shot inside her car. She was taken to a Weatherford hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The OHP reports the suspect fired shots at number of semis on the I-40, but didn't hit anyone.
Troopers said the unidentified suspect was taken to the Custer County jail where he was initially booked on a complaint of DUI.
