Stillwater PD says it was contacted by Ponca City police to assist with locating and arresting 26-year-old Harvey Duane Adkins III.

According to Ponca City police, Adkins was wanted for allegedly shooting Van Chatfield III in the head Wednesday night.

First responders rushed Chatfield to a hospital in Wichita, Kansas. There’s no word yet on his condition.

Adkins also had an outstanding warrant through Kay County for assault with a deadly weapon.
