EDMOND, Oklahoma -

An Edmond man was booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center Thursday on multiple complaints including shooting with intent to kill. Edmond police arrested 36-year-old Carrington Scott on Wednesday following an officer-involved shooting at the man’s home. Police said Scott was wounded but treated and released from the hospital.

Edmond police were contacted by 911 by Scott’s friend. He notified police that he went to Scott’s home near Sooner Road and East 2nd Street to check on him but was met with gunfire. That man ran to nearby Aspen Coffee for help.

“He was hunching over,” Aspen Coffee employee Avery Hamlin said. “Limping a little.”

Police said the man was not injured by gunfire but possibly as he was trying to escape. Meanwhile, the shots continued coming from Scott’s home.

“While we were out here there were some shots from inside the house,” Edmond Police Information Officer Emily Ward said. “It’s unclear to us at this time if he was shooting at us or he was shooting randomly,”

Ward said neighbors were told to stay inside their homes as gunfire came from both sides.

Bob Mills SkyNews 9 pilot Jim Gardner explained the damage that was done to an SUV in Scott’s driveway.

“It is just riddled with bullet holes. You can see all the back glass blown out, you see all the bullet holes along the side of it there,” Gardner said.

Edmond police returned fire on Scott.

“At one point he exited his home wearing body armor and carrying a rifle,” Ward said. “He continued to shoot and that’s when our officers shot him.”

Ward said none of the officers at the scene were injured. The officers who fired at Scott are now on paid administrative leaving.
