MIAMI, Okla. – An 84-year-old Ottawa County man, possibly suffering from dementia, is in the Ottawa County jail accused of shooting his son and wife, Ottawa County Sheriff David Dean said Tuesday.
Dean did not release the name of the suspect but did say he was being held on two complaints of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
The two victims were taken to a local hospital and are listed in stable condition, the sheriff said. The suspect was taken into custody without any issues, he said.
The son was shot twice and the suspect’s wife was shot in the arm, Dean said.
The investigation is continuing, Dean said.
Dean said the shooting was not related to the jail escape.
