OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Relatives of a woman and a 12-year-old girl who were wounded during a shooting at an Oklahoma restaurant say they don't understand why the victims were attacked by a man they didn't know. Dennis Will says his 39-year-old daughter was grazed by bullets and her 12-year-old daughter was shot in the stomach during the Thursday night shooting. Will said Saturday that his daughter has been released from the hospital but his granddaughter remains hospitalized. He says she underwent surgery.

EDMOND, Oklahoma (AP) - The resistance to President Donald Trump looks different from the streets of red America compared to liberal metropolises. In Oklahoma and other conservative states, the goals are more modest and the president's name is rarely uttered. But activists say the stakes as just as high. That gives Democrats hopes of a national resurgence, though no one suggests that the heartland will change its political allegiance on a dime.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to pointing a laser pointer at an Oklahoma City Police Department helicopter has been sentenced to probation. Federal court records indicate that U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton sentenced 30-year-old Travis Allen Jones to three years' probation on Tuesday. Jones must also perform 104 hours of community service work and pay about $500 in restitution to the police department. Aviation officials say the concentrated light of laser pointers can blind pilots.

ATOKA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a shooting in which two people were killed and a third was wounded in southeastern Oklahoma. Investigators say Hershal DeWayne Hatley was taken into custody Friday on two counts of first-degree murder and one of shooting with intent to kill. The OSBI says Hatley is accused in Friday's shooting deaths of 33-year-old Sami Williams and 73-year-old Richard Miller.
