Investigation underway to uncover more in Grove shooting


DELAWARE COUNTY, Okla. – An investigation is underway in Delaware County as authorities work to uncover more details in a deadly shooting that took place early Thursday morning.

She was taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening gunshot wound. The woman reported to the authorities the suspect got into a White 2010 Nissan with tinted windows and then fled the scene. And a vehicle belonging to the man who was killed was also taken from the scene. Authorities are still searching for that vehicle.

Investigators have identified Charlie Buzzard, 34, as a person of interest in the shooting.

Thursday afternoon, law enforcement located the alleged suspect’s vehicle in McDonald County. They found a relative of Buzzard’s in that vehicle.
