The Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that sent two people to the hospital, Sunday night.

Sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call earlier Sunday evening from a woman who had barricaded herself in the bathroom of her home on the 45000 block of Highway 9, near Konawa, Okla. She told police that her son had shot her in the head and she believed he was firing more shots through the door.

When deputies arrived on scene they reported hearing gunshots. Once tribal police arrived as backup, the officers entered the home and found that the son had shot himself in the head.

The mother was transported from the scene to OU Medical Center via ambulance. The son was taken by medical helicopter to OU Medical Center as well. Neither has been identified at this time. Their conditions have not been released.

The cause of the shooting is under investigation.
