News 9 was told, at one point, there were more than 15 police cars on the scene of the domestic fight that almost turned deadly.

"It just kind of shocked me to see this in this area," neighbor Monty Gillespie said.

In a normally quiet section of town, Saturday morning, neighbors rushed out of their homes when they heard the sound of gunfire.

"My granddaughters fiancé was checking the mail, and he came back in," said Gillespie. "Before he made it to the mail box, he said there's cops going down the street with their guns drawn."

"Evidently, he drove off after the gunshots, and came back five minutes later, and had another fight in the garage, and that's when the police showed up," neighbor Blake Koonce said.

According to Norman Police, the suspect, 47-year old Todd Williams Hoss, went to his vehicle and pulled out a gun at some point during the fight.

"We think he shot at least two rounds, perhaps one into the ground, and then one into our victim," Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley said.

The victim was shot once in the arm, and taken to OU Medical center to treat what police say appear to be non-life threatening injuries.

Hoss is not a stranger to domestic situations. According to court records, at least two women have filed protective orders against him.

Norman Police have not released the name of the victim. Hoss has yet to be formally charged.
