McLoud Police Investigating After Teen Girl Fatally Shot
McLOUD, Oklahoma - McLoud Police says a teen girl has died after being shot Friday afternoon.
According to police, the shooting took place at a home on East Heritage Park Road.
A witness on scene heard the shot and rushed to the home to help.
“Once I went inside I said where is she at. He pointed me to the room she was at and when I went in the room I saw what happened,” said Larry Gonzales, witness.
Neighbors said a group of teenagers were at the home. The victim was found in a pool of blood.
Gonzales said another person helped him apply pressure to the wound, but there was too much blood to tell where the victim had been shot.
Gonzales was also on the phone with 911 and said the dispatcher asked him if you could see a weapon in the room.
“The operator on the phone was like, ‘Can you see a gun, can you see a gun?’ I didn’t want to disrupt the crime scene and I didn’t want to move anything that shouldn’t be moved,” said Gonzales.
Gonzales said he couldn’t find the weapon.
The victim, identified as 16-year-old Kaylen Thomas, was transported to a local hospital in critical condition where she passed away from her injuries.
At this time, no arrests have been made. Police can't confirm if the shooting was accidental.
