The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man was arrested for shooting a woman for taking a Nazi swastika flag from his property.
According to officials, Garfield County deputies responded about 3 a.m. Sunday to a shots fired call. It happened at a house near Missouri and Cherokee in the town of Hunter.
“Four deputies show up, they found one female laying in a ditch with gunshot wounds and the suspect had went back in the house,” said Garfield County Sheriff Jody Helm.
Helm said there was a party near a home where Nazi flags are displayed in the front yard. Kyndal McVey, 26, tried stealing one of the flags and was shot.
Law officers arrested 44-year-old Alexander John Feaster.
“I don’t even know when, if ever it’s happened here,” said a neighbor who wished not to be identified. “It’s always been a pretty quiet town.”
Some neighbors said when they first noticed the swastika flags, they were surprised, but they’ve never suspected violence.
“No one likes the flags hanging over there but there’s not much you can do about it,” said one neighbor. “But I’m not going to judge anyone for trying to go take them down either.”
McVey was airlifted to OU Medical Center and her condition is not known as of Monday afternoon.
The sheriff’s department said the OSBI is assisting on this case as multiple weapons were found inside Feaster’s home.
“We recovered 14 weapons, some ammunition, so OSBI is going to help us with the ballistics,” said Helm.
Feaster was arrested and booked in the Garfield County jail on complaints of shooting with intent to kill and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Officials said the incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Garfield County Sheriff's Office at 580-237-0244.
